The Association for the Study of African American Life and History founded in 1915 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, recently held its 104th Annual Convention in Charleston, SC., where Dr. Brenda R. Simmons-Hutchins received the Mary McLeod Bethune Services Award. The national award was presented to Dr. Simmons-Hutchins to highlight her career and service to education, African-American history, and the community. “All these attributes symbolize the life of Dr. Bethune,” said Hazel Gillis, local ASALH Chapter President.
Among her many contributions, Dr. Simmons-Hutchins was the co-creator of the Jacksonville Black History Calendar.
