How wonderful as a student of Mary H Wright in 1936, tht you would be recognizing her birth her life. That looks like me standing next to Mrs, Wright. I was one of five girls chosen to eat and share lunch with her on some days. Could I receive a ccpy of the photograph.

"She taught hundreds of children during her 60-plus years in the schools and dedicated her life to helping others. She established an annual Christmas tree program for needy children, founded a chapter of the American Red Cross and organized a home for elderly black women.

Wright (1862-1946) was born to slave parents in Spartanburg."
