6:30-8:00pm. 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. Calvert Library Prince Frederick, 850 Costley Way, 410-535-0291 or 301-855-1862. CalvertLibrary.info.
