Equal Opportunity Schools: Celebrating Michelle Obama

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates women of color, like Michelle Obama, the first African-American First Lady of the United States, an attorney, author, and education advocate for adolescent girls. As First Lady, Obama championed causes such as Let’s Move (ending childhood obesity), Reach Higher Initiative (job opportunities), and Joining Forces (supporting service members, veterans and military families). Obama is set to be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

Join us in honoring Michelle Obama by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.

Equal Opportunity Schools: Celebrating Charles Hamilton Houston

Equal Opportunity Schools is celebrating Black History Month by recognizing inspirational Black leaders. Charles Hamilton Houston taught at Howard University, became a lawyer, and the first African American editor of the Harvard Law Review.

In 1929, Houston joined Howard Law School’s faculty, mentored Thurgood Marshall, and played a role in nearly every civil rights case before the Supreme Court (1930-1954). The Charles Hamilton Houston Hall (Howard University School of Law) and the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice (Harvard Law School) are named for him.

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