This is the nineteenth year of the celebration of notable blacks in Miami-Dade County with the unveiling of the 2012-2013 AT&T Black History Calendar. A cherished event in Miami’s black community, this year, the calendar is all about the accomplishments and contributions of local black women.
I am proud and that my mother, Mary Williams Woodard, is one of the honorees who will receive this recognition, although hers is posthumous. The other women featured on this year’s calendar are: Dr. Alice W. Johnson; Georgiana Johnson Bethel; Rebecca “Butterfly” Vaughns; Commissioner Juanita Smith; Dr. Charlie Powell Albury; Florene Litthcut Nichols; Alyce Martin; Eunice W. Liberty (posthumous); Vicki M. Smith Jackson; Dorothy W. Graham; and the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
Already knowing the accomplishments of many of the honorees, this should be a fabulous event. Expect to see many of the movers and shakers in Miami in attendance. This event is free and open to the public. Thank you to event sponsors: AT&T, The Miami Herald and The Black Archives.
