Herstory: Anna Murray Douglass, A Journey to Our Roots

On May 11th Anna Murray Douglass School #12 celebrated the life of the school’s namesake. Hundreds of parents, students, teachers, community leaders, and administrators enjoyed great food, music, and community spirit. The students showcased the life and legacy of Anna Murray Douglass through creative projects on display throughout the school. The entire second floor was dedicated to the Underground Railroad with a description of Kelsey’s landing shown here. This beautifully orchestrated bi-lingual family event included screen printing t-shirts with an Anna Douglass likeness, a coloring station, a star drawing contest, and a myriad of projects at each grade level. 

Congratulations to the teachers and students at AMD School #12. This well-attended program was a credit to the school and the City School District. The students’ presentations were impressive and well researched. The children were very excited to share their work with their families and visitors.

We at the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery are always excited about collaborating with Anna Murray Douglass School #12 which is our “neighborhood school.” It is an honor to work with such a creative, dedicated faculty and administration. And the children are an inspiration to all of us.
