Physician-Author Deepak Chopra

In this letter physician-author Deepak Chopra recounts being touched by Rosa Parks’s bus stand as a young boy in India and the effects her actions had on his parents and family who shared “wounds of slavery and subjugation.” “They cheered and saluted the heroism of the black woman Rosa Parks.” Chopra collaborated with Rosa Parks on an audiobook, Secrets of Inner Power: A Profile in Courage (1999).
