Emerging Women

This exhibit is a tribute to the untold stories of the work behind the scenes to face the hardships resulting from the end of the Civil War. While great men debated, and philosophized on “The Negro Problem”, great women were quietly serving the day-to-day needs of thousands of children left destitute in the city. For the women who led this effort, there was nothing to debate, there was just work to do. As the charter of one organization came to an end, another woman’s vision unfolded into a similar theme - children must have a home and an education.
