MAR. 1 -- TBJ Show # 631 -- Mrs. Norman, We Love You. Garnet High School in Charleston, WV was Tony Brown’s high school. It was one of the most academically rigorous high schools in the nation and, as a result, in 1951 his freshman entrance exam to Wayne State University in Detroit was waived because of Garnet’s outstanding academic record. The fact that Garnet was all-Black by laws that ironically resulted in an all-Black faculty that possessed advanced college degrees from a variety of prestigious universities that included The Sorbonne in Paris and many of the most distinguished Black colleges in the U. S. On this edition, his English teacher, Ruth S. Norman, and the all-Black school’s standard of academic excellence and character building are profiled. Garnet High School was named after Henry Highland Garnett, a militant former slave from the Mandingo tribe in Africa and later Jamaica.
MAR. 2 -- TBJ Show # 601 -- When The Sisters Came Marching Home. After this profile on the 6888 Black WAC unit was aired, Tony Brown appealed to the Reagan White House to honor the WWII Black WAC unit: “This superb group of women was the only Black WAC unit to serve overseas during WWII. They were cited for doing a job that no one else had succeeded in doing. The 6888th also holds the dubious distinction of being the only all-female unit to serve overseas which did not receive a citation. Do help this administration to recognize and legitimize these victims of racism – and sexism.”
