SPECIAL MOTHER'S DAY RECOGNITION
Peggy Trotter Dammond Preacely
Dr. Dorothy Cotton
In tribute to Mother's Day, I am honored to share a special announcement that later this year my great-great-grandmother, Ellen Craft will be one of six women—including Princess Diana—recognized with the esteemed Blue Plaque presented by the English Heritage Charitable Trust in London. The Blue Plaque will be displayed in the London neighborhood of Hammersmith, where my great-great-grandparents lived for nearly 20 years after escaping slave catchers in Boston, then returning to the U.S. three years after the Civil War in 1868.
