Bertha Maxwell-Roddey at Usc Lancaster: Sharing the lessons of Black History Month
“These exhibits are for individuals, families, and the classroom teacher to bring his or her students.”
Bertha Maxwell-Roddey is an educator, historian and leader.
Her accolades are many: first black principal of a predominantly white school during the integration of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools; first chair of the Afro-American studies department at UNC Charlotte; and president of the national Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
People at USC Lancaster -- where she has taught since 1987 -- simply refer to her as a renaissance woman.
'Dr. Roddey is a teacher, but she's so much more,' said college spokesman Shana Funderburk. 'She doesn't dwell on her past accomplishments.
