St. Louis American Women’s History Month Series

During Black History Month, students in “ACC Women’s and Gender Studies” wrote profiles about influential women throughout history. Throughout the month of March, four of these profiles appeared in the St. Louis American's Women’s History Month Series. The St. Louis American, the single largest weekly newspaper in Missouri, is the “most-trusted voice of the area’s African-American community."

Many thanks to Ms. Ann Hammer (Diversity Coordinator and Theology teacher) and Mrs. Amy Summers (“The Voice” moderator and English teacher) for working with the students to get their pieces ready for publication.
