The African American Educators Archives and History Program has announced that since last March, when they introduced 30 Charter Members, they are now welcoming an additional nine outstanding individuals as Charter Members: Al Herron, Dr. Genna Rae McNeil, Lucious Newhouse, Anietie Antia-Obong, Betty Perkins, Loretta Simon, Dr. Roscoe C. Smith, Dr. Velma Prince Smith and Dr. Robert Watkins.
Each Charter Member donated a minimum of $1,200 toward the installation of the Digital Interactive Wall Project and three grants, totaling $32,975, were received from:
- Humanities Texas
- The Dallas Foundation
- The Addy Foundation
According to organizers, the group is continuing with fundraising efforts and still need the support. As the end of the year approaches, now would be a good time to make a tax-deductible donation to this worthy cause. The honorary co-chairs are Sen Royce and Carol West.
Donors’ names or the names of their organizations will appear on the donor list on the project’s website and on the donor list of the Digital Interactive Wall Multi-Media Board.
