BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH



This Month We Honor and Celebrate the birthday of Paul Laurence Dunbar.   Born on June 27, 1872, he was one of the most  famous poets of the 19th century. In his prose he used the rhythmic-flow of   Black-English. His poetry depicted the beauty of love, the joys of childhood

and the Black family..



 We also celebrate our present day role model, Dr. Marian Wright Edelman, who was born June 6, 1939.  A graduate of Spelman College and Yale Law  School, she was the first Black woman admitted to the Mississippi Bar Association.   Dr. Edelman is Founder and President of the Children's Defense Fund, the most powerful national force advocating children's human rights. Presently, she resides in Washington, DC.
