Mary White Ovington | Suffragist, Activist, Writer | Britannica

Happy birthday, Mary White Ovington!

Born April 11, 1865, Mary White Ovington was descended from New York Unitarian abolitionists and spent her life fighting for social justice. She was inspired by Booker T. Washington and W.E.B DuBois. A founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Ovington worked tirelessly for the organization for decades. She lived in the Tuskegee Apartments in Manhattan, where she was the only white resident, and sponsored racially mixed dinners in an era when that was dangerous. Ovington worked to bring black women into positions of authority in the NAACP and wrote a history of that movement, The Walls Came Tumbling Down. Her ashes are interred at Community Church, a Unitarian church in New York, where she was a member. – This Day in Unitarian Universalist History
