When working for Be a Tourist in Your Own Town at the MSU Museum, one of my favorite exhibits was "Dear Mr. Mandela, Dear Mrs. Parks."
If focused on the contributions of Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks and the letters written to them by young and old over time.
It also encouraged people to write letters to those they cared about and share them with the museum.
They're posted on a line in the exhibit and some are quite touching.
I particularly loved this one from a man to his father. I hope if you click on it, you'll be able to read it.
Also posted were comments from both Parks...
They are words worth remembering.
And as always, thank you for your comments!
