Margaret Dunkle, who chaired the 2015 Harriet Elizabeth Brown Commemoration Task Force, will discuss the life and legacy of this remarkable Calvert County teacher. In 1937, represented by 29-year-old NAACP attorney Thurgood Marshall, Ms. Brown challenged the Calvert County Board of Education for paying African-American teachers about half what they paid to equally qualified white teachers. The School Board agreed to equalize salaries, doubling the pay of African-American teachers and propelling similar reforms statewide and across the South. Come to learn about this Calvert County legend. Reception, presentation & Q&A and discussion. Students and parents are especially invited to attend! Co-sponsored with John Hanson Chapter, DAR.
