Mediation And The Estate Of Rosa Parks

According to this article in The Detroit News, relatives of Rosa Parks and her longtime associate agreed to try mediating their dispute over dividing and controlling the civil rights legend’s estate. Just as I had posted last year in a different mediated dispute involving Rosa Parks, it has been suggested that mediation could serve as an opportunity for family members to vent their concerns outside the public domain. Throughout the dispute, everyone has said they want to preserve Parks’ dignity and legacy. This pro bono mediation is scheduled for May 17th.
