BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH



This month we will commemorate the birthday of our historic role model, Kwame Nkrumah.  Though the actual day he was born is not known, we commemorate his birth as being September 21, 1909.  Dr. Kwame krumah was the first Prime Minister of Ghana, which was the first African country to win independence from  British Colonial rule in 1957.


We will also honor our present day role model, Ruby Bridges, born September 8, 1954 in New Orleans, Louisiana.  In 1960 at six years of age, she was one of the first black children to force integration of an all white public elementary school in the South.  The first three weeks, she was escorted by Federal Marshals and was the only child in her class.  Presently, Ruby Bridges Hall resides in New Orleans, La. In the effort “to increase Parental Involvement in Education” she founded “The Ruby Bridges Foundation”.
