A name that should be added to the list of legal trailblazers is Samuel Tucker. He was the lawyer to cause the integration of the Alexandria, VA library in 1927. That was only the tip of the iceberg with regard to his constant fight for civil rights.

The close of this event at FUMC posed the question to the participants, "Where do we go from here?" Indeed, in light of the incident at Starbucks in Philadelphia that took place this week, where have we been and where do we go from here?

When it comes to noteworthy Black women, we need to take a look at the accomplishments of Ursula Burns, CEO of Xerox Corporation (one of the Fortune 500). She's one of those who was also among the STEM and STEAM pioneers and clawed her way (over 30 years) to where she is today. My thanks to Dan Waldschmidt for bringing her story to our attention.
