Florida Frontiers TV - Mary McLeod Bethune Goes to Washington

Florida Frontiers TV – Episode 48 – Mary McLeod Bethune Goes to Washington

 

Mary McLeod Bethune was a larger-than-life educator and activist whose legacy is now remembered with an eleven-foot tall, 6,000-pound statue carved by Nilda Comas. She used the last piece of statuary marble taken from the same Italian quarry used by Renaissance artist Michelangelo. The statue will represent Florida in the US Capitol building.
