Harriet Elizabeth Brown Commemoration Task Force

Margaret Dunkle’s mission is to tell you about Harriett Elizabeth Brown, a trailblazing civil rights advocate, who in 1937, with representation from NAACP attorney Thurgood Marshall, successfully challenged unequal pay for African American teachers.

It was Dunkle’s own pioneering efforts as chair of the Calvert County Commission for Women that led to the task force recognizing Brown’s impact on history.

In 2012 Dunkle was inducted into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame for her work toward stronger Title IX regulations in college athletics.
