Bob Schmidt

Rosa Parks

Who do you know who has shaken the hand of Rosa Parks? Bob Schmidt, that’s who, and he had the opportunity to meet the First Lady of Civil Rights because his profession as a journalist put him in the right place at the right time.

Mr. Schmidt presented a fascinating history of the civil rights movement with emphasis on Ms. Parks’ involvement in it. His slides helped bring the history to life, as did his warm, knowledgeable speaking style. The thirty or so people in the audience clearly enjoyed themselves, as indicated by one of the longest and most lively question-and-answer sessions we’ve seen in a long time. Everybody had something to ask or share.

Thank you, Bob Schmidt, for an enlightening and entertaining afternoon.
