From Beaver County to D.C.: Paulette Potter Finds Pride

  • Aired: 08/26/2013

  • Rating: NR
Beaver County resident Paulette Potter was urged to go on the March with her mother, a local NAAC activist. Then 16, Paulette recalls the trip as fun, but realizes that the pride she gained from attending the March helped inspire her in her career as an educator in a small, Western Pennsylvania school. She developed the first Black Studies curriculum in her school district, still in use today.
