Americans have spent the past week remembering Mike Ilitch, the owner of the Detroit Red Wings and Founder of Little Caesar’s pizza, who passed away on Friday at the age of 87.

Damon Keith, a Detroit judge, revealed this week that Ilitch paid Rosa Parks’ rent through the end of her life.

Check it out:

“They don’t go around saying it, but I want to, at this point, let them know, how much the Ilitches not only meant to the city, but they meant so much for Rosa Parks, who was the mother of the civil rights movement,” Keith told WXYZ.

Shortly after her famed defiance of segregation sparked the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott, Parks moved to Detroit and became an important presence in the city for years afterward.
But in 1994, Parks was robbed and assaulted in her home at the age of 81.
Keith, himself an important legal figure in the civil rights movement, worked to find Parks a new, safer apartment at the Riverfront Apartments in Detroit, according to the Sports Business Daily.
What a remarkable story.
Sounds like there was a lot more to Mike Ilitch than hockey and pizza.
