Mary McLeod Bethune (1875-1955) was born the 15th of 17 children to former slaves in South Carolina. This inspiring program follows her path from the cotton fields of the South to being known as a renowned African American educator, leader of women, distinguished adviser to several American presidents, and champion of racial equality. Her many achievements are a testament to the power of education and its importance in the African American community. In an era when most African American children received little or no education, she established a school for African American girls. In 1904, she rented a two-story frame building in Daytona Beach, Fla., and opened her school with only $1.50, six pupils, used crates for desks and crushed elderberries for ink. Through determination and dedication, she built this tiny school into United Methodist Church affiliated Bethune-Cookman University. Mary McLeod Bethune set a standard of excellence for the education of African Americans and she achieved her dreams through her own determination and strong faith in herself. Bonus Material: Each program includes 24 minutes of Bonus material.
