1. Martha Schofield centennial anniversary celebration
Mary Schofield Ash Jenkins was the niece of Martha Schofield. She writes about the life and legacy of Martha Schofield, with a focus on her work to educate African Americans.
“Martha Schofield was brave, courageous and fearless ... Her interests were broad, and besides her chief one, negro education, she was an ardent advocate of peace, and the causes of temperance and woman suffrage. Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott, Lucy Stone, and many other reformers, were among her personal friends. She was a pioneer in industrial education, stressing chiefly in her school such handcrafts as would be useful at home, as well as for earning a living.” (p. 2)
