This book is about Mary McLeod Bethune
"Mary McLeod Bethune in Washington, D.C.: Activism and Education in Logan Circle" unveils the inspiring story of Mary McLeod Bethune, a daughter of former slaves who became a towering figure in the fight for educational equity and racial justice. Moving to Washington, D.C., in 1936, Bethune leveraged her leadership to challenge and overturn segregationist policies, significantly shaping the city's cultural and social landscape. Through her role with the National Council of Negro Women, she not only advanced the rights of African American women but also fostered interracial cooperation, highlighted by pioneering integrated sports events. Historian Ida E. Jones meticulously narrates Bethune's profound impact, not just as a civil rights activist but as a cherished community mentor. This book, published on June 4, 2013, serves as a crucial educational tool for middle-school students, encouraging them to explore the intersections of race and education and to reflect on how one individual's relentless pursuit of justice can ignite change in a community.
