October 2019 Events

October is National Stamp Collecting Month as well as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As of today, we have three events where we will have pop-up exhibits highlighting Hattie McDaniel who battled breast cancer. She was a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. The organization started the Hattie McDaniel Breast Cancer Initiative in her honor. We are bringing awareness to disparities in diagnosis and treatments among women of color.

Hattie McDaniel won an Academy Award for Gone With The Wind but was not able to attend the Awards Show due to racism.
