Summary:
(1875-1955) Born in Maysville, South Carolina, to parents who had been slaves until the end of the Civil War, educator Mary McLeod Bethune always had a strong determination to read. She devoted her life to creating better educational opportunities for black students. In 1904, she opened the Dayton Normal and Industrial School for Girls, which eventually became Bethune-Cookman College. Facing much resistance from white society, Bethune was supported by contemporaries like Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, and she became an important national figure, eventually serving in the 50 Nation Conference -- a precursor to the United Nations. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
