“Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations.”—Dr. Mae Jemison, first African-American female astronaut

Image result for mae jemison biography

When the space shuttle Endeavour blasted off on its second mission, it carried the first African American woman into space. But Mae Jemison is more than an astronaut — she’s also a physician, a Peace Corps volunteer, a teacher, and founder and president of two technology companies.

Born in Decatur, Ala., on Oct. 17, 1956, Mae Carol Jemison moved to Chicago at the age of 3 and considers the city her hometown. The youngest of three children born to a maintenance worker and an elementary schoolteacher, she had a fascination with all things science from an early age. Jemison did well in high school, and attended Stanford University on scholarship at the age of 16. There, she attained her bachelor of science in chemical engineering and a bachelor of arts in African and African-American studies. She went on to earn her doctorate in medicine from Cornell University in 1981.

The Drowsy Chaperone opens next week!
This 2006 hit musical and winner of multiple Tony awards begins in the apartment of “Man In Chair,” a reclusive musical theater fanatic eager to play us a record of his favorite 1920s musical The Drowsy Chaperone. As he plays the record and offers his own wry commentary, the wacky musical comes to life before our eyes in spectacular fashion, serving up an irresistible concoction of sparkling old-school charm and contemporary snark.

ADVISORY AGENDA 2.5.19

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”—Booker T. Washington

Booker T. Washington

Educator Booker T. Washington was one of the foremost African-American leaders of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born into slavery in Virginia in the mid-to-late 1850s, Booker T. Washington put himself through school and became a teacher after the Civil War. In 1881, he founded the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute in Alabama (now known as Tuskegee University), which grew immensely and focused on training African Americans in agricultural pursuits. He was also a political adviser and writer.

ADVISORY AGENDA 2.4.19

“Black History is American History” – Morgan Freeman

Image result for sojourner truth

Sojourner Truth (born Isabella Baumfree, c. 1797 to November 26, 1883) was an African-American abolitionist and women’s rights activist best-known for her speech on racial inequalities, “Ain’t I a Woman?”, delivered extemporaneously in 1851 at the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention.

Truth was born into slavery but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826. She devoted her life to the abolitionist cause and helped to recruit black troops for the Union Army. Although Truth began her career as an abolitionist, the reform causes she sponsored were broad and varied, including prison reform, property rights and universal suffrage.

ADVISORY AGENDA 2.1.19

“Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.”  – Maya Angelou

Greensboro first day

On February 1, 1960, four African American college students sat down at a lunch counter at Woolworth’s in Greensboro, North Carolina, and politely asked for service. Their request was refused. When asked to leave, they remained in their seats. Their passive resistance and peaceful sit-down demand helped ignite a youth-led movement to challenge racial inequality throughout the South.
