International Federation of Professional Business Women - 0 views

  •  
    This the offical website for the group and explains the mission and the values of the group as a whole. It also offers history on the creation of the group and what the group is currently involved with today. I found it extremely intresting that a Kentucky women born before women had the right to vote could make such a huge impact not only on a state level or a nation wide level, but on an international level, like Lena Phillips was able to accomplish in her lifetime.

Saint Peter Claver Catholic Church - 0 views

  •  
    This website gives information on one of the churches in my group project. The church was built for the black catholics in Lexington due to segregation in the two other catholic churches. The website offers the history of the church, which also had a school, even though most of the students were not catholic. Despite the racial segregation between the catholic churches in Lexington, St. Peter Claver did not recieve a black preist until the year 2000.

The University of Louisville's Women's Center - 0 views

  •  
    I really liked what the University of Louisville was doing to try to impower the lives of the women students and the women living in Jefferson County. The goal of the Women's Center is to promote equality between men and women, increase the self reliance of women and to display and demonstrate everything that women do for society. The goal is to change the mindset of both men and women who are living in a different era and to show that women are capable of accomplishing anything that a man is capable of accomplishing.

Education and African American Females - 0 views

  •  
    Education is one of the most important investments of any society. However, negative stigmitism, conflicting ideas, and neglect often infiltrate academia through racism in the U.S. education system. Carla O'Connor, Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Studies at the University of Michigan, conducted a study in that involved the experiences of three different African American females in the college education environment. A great study to read that dissects the issue of race and gender in American education.
