Remembering Our
Black Trailblazers
And Their Legacies

By Barbara A. Pierce

I was born in Memphis, Tennessee where I lived until moving to New York City at the age of eleven years old. After attending three years of junior high school in the city, my family and I moved to Mount Vemon, New York where I attend high school for three years also. Immediately after graduation, I became a telephone operator for two and a half years before entering college in Pennsylvania. Upon recieving a degree in education, I began my career as an elementary school teacher in Mount Vemon, New York that lasted for thirty-five years. It was during that time I pursued and earned a Master's Degree in education and reading. Since retiring in 2003, I have worked as a substitute teacher and a volunteer in the same school system. I have also written ten books and has appeared in Who's Who in American Education Publications.
