Mary McLeod Bethune: The Black Velvet Rose

This 44 page book is written for middle school children. It tells in first person the life of this remarkable black woman who was born in poverty to former slaves, 15 of 17 children. She rose to become an educator, leader, and advisor to four presidents. The story of this admirable role model is one all children should read.
