行动主义者玛丽.秋契.泰瑞 (Mary Church Terrell) 于1863923日出生了

泰瑞发现黑人妇女团体在19世纪后期,一直都被排除在全国妇女组织之外。她们只能出席1893年世界博览会,但是却无法参与整个活动的规划与设计。就因为这样,泰瑞和一些黑人妇女领袖在1896年共同组成了「全国有色人种妇女协会」,这是一个支持全国各地黑人妇女团体的组织。泰瑞和这个协会共同为了消除对性别与种 族的歧视而努力。其中的一种方法,就是通过教育社会大众来达到这个目的。此外,泰瑞对教育有着很大的热情,所以她也不断在四处演讲、筹募兴建幼稚园的经费。

Terrell found that black women's groups were routinely excluded from national women's organizations during the late 19th century. They weren't even allowed to participate in the planning of the 1893 World's Fair, but they could attend. Because of this, Terrell and other black women leaders formed the National Association of Colored Women (NACW) in 1896, an organization that would support black women's groups throughout the country. She and the NACW worked to end discrimination based on gender and race. One way was through educating the public. Passionate about education, Terrell sold her speeches to raise money for a kindergarten as well.
