Equal Opportunity Schools: Celebrating Mary McLeod Bethune

Equal Opportunity Schools is celebrating Black History Month by recognizing a truly inspirational Black educator. Mary McLeod Bethune was a lifelong champion of education and civil rights. She started her career as a teacher before founding Bethune-Cookman College, which provided a place for African American students to pursue a college degree and set the educational standards for today’s black colleges.

We encourage you to join the conversation and leave a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
