United Women in Faith Celebrates Unveiling of Mary McLeod Bethune Statue in Capitol

United Women in Faith celebrates the honoring of one of our great foremothers Mary McLeod Bethune with a newly unveiled statue in the Capitol, the first African American in the National Statuary Hall collection. A lifelong member of the Woman’s Society of Christian Service, Bethune was an educator, civil rights activist, advisor to the U.S president, and founder of what is now Bethune-Cookman University, a United Methodist-related institution of higher education in Daytona Beach, Florida.
