The Story of Ella Baker by Patricia Hruby Powell .
(link to video)

https://www.bcdi-milwaukee.org/post/read-to-succeed-lift-as-you-climb

"Long before the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s, Ella Baker worked to lift others up by fighting racial injustice and empowering poor African Americans to stand up for their rights. Her dedication and grassroots work in many communities made her a valuable ally for leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and she has been ranked as one of the most influential women in the civil rights movement. In the 1960s she worked to register voters and organize sit-ins, and she became a teacher and mentor to many young activists."

General information

This year, as are many other organizations, we are challenged to do more with less. What is unique to BCDI-Milwaukee is that our Board and members are comprised entirely of volunteers. This means that there are many people who are truly committed – we walk the talk. Because of our long history of integrity and reputation in Milwaukee and nationally, our Affiliate has been selected to participate in a number of pilot (grant) projects that will enhance the quality of life of children and their families. It is a privilege to be recognized and regarded. And we continue to develop partnerships along the way to help us fulfill our mission.
