An African-American educator and civil rights activist. She developed the literacy and citizenship workshops that played a major role in the drive for voting rights and civil rights for blacks in the Civil Rights Movement. She became known as the “Queen mother” or “Grandmother” of the American Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Martin Luther King, Jr. commonly referred to Clark as “The Mother of the Movement”. Clark’s argument for her position in the civil rights movement was one that claimed “knowledge could empower marginalized groups in ways that formal legal equality couldn’t.” Another great and under appreciated leader. Look her up. I hope you all have found this entire project informative and equally inspiring. Thanks for the kind words, support and most of all for sharing the information with others. Black History Month isn’t over. It’s everyday. Not just for Black people but for all people. The history & accomplishments of all people affect each and every one of us. In other words: My history is yours and vice versa. Special thanks to my editor, co-writer & wife.
