Alumni & Friends News

June   Events

Dr. Marian Wright Edelman.

This month we will celebrate our present day role model. Dr. Marian Wright Edelman. From her work with poor children in Mississippi in the 1960s to the present, Dr. Edelman has endeavored to give all children the public voice they lack yet so desperately need. Through the Children's Defense Fund, which she created over 20 years ago, Dr. Edelman has sought to bring the plight of children to the attention of policy makers and the public, and has been a vigorous advocate for the creation and funding of programs to improve children's lives, for strengthening families and for weaving a web of community support for children.


We will also commemorate the   birthday   of   Paul Lawrence Dunbar. He was born on June 27, 1872. He was one of the most famous poets of the 19th century. His poetry depicted the beauty and rhythmic flow of Black English, the joys of the Black family, love, and childhood.
