Bertha Maxwell-Roddey at Usc Lancaster: Sharing the lessons of Black History Month

There are 1 comment on the Charlotte.com story from Feb 3, 2008, titled Bertha Maxwell-Roddey at Usc Lancaster: Sharing the lessons of Black History Month. In it, Charlotte.com reports that:

“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. In fact, most of her students know her simply as their African American teacher. ...Perhaps her biggest strength is her ability to bring together a lot of diverse people for a single purpose.'
