Mary McLeod Bethune
Mary McLeod Bethune: Building a Better World Mary McLeod Bethune: Building a Better World by Mary McLeod Bethune, Audrey Thomas McCluskey (Editor), Elaine M. Smith
Mary McLeod was the daughter of former slaves. She graduated from Scotia Seminary (now Barber-Scotia College) in Concord, North Carolina, in 1893 and from the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago in 1895. Marriage, teaching and numerous educational accomplishments led her to be appointed administrative assistant for Negro affairs (a title changed in 1939 to director of the division of Negro affairs) of the National Youth Administration by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a post she held until 1944. During this period she founded the National Council of Negro Women and she was vice president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. She was an adviser on minority affairs to Roosevelt and assisted the secretary of war in selecting officer candidates for the U.S. Women's Army Corps (WAC). Enough? Not for Mary McLeod Bethune!
