Black History 365: Hortense Parker

Black History 365: Hortense Parker

Since there are so many facets of the history that people of African descent have made in this country, I’ve decided to continue my “Black History 365″ series from my poetry blog here on my AfrocentriqueAZ blog. I’ll be posting a new “First Black” entry every Wednesday. This week is the First known African-American woman to graduate from one of the Seven Sisters college: Hortense Parker.

Picking up where I left off… List of African-American firsts

One of my main points of having this blog is to post about Black History. I don’t have regular access to the internet so I have not been posting as much as I wanted. So… going back to the List of African-American firsts from Wikipedia. I left off at Frederick Douglass so I will be picking up from there and posting once a week starting next month. Stay tuned! ^_^
