Description

This is a photo of Velma Hill, Harlem CORE member, leader in the City Hall protests of 1963 and the city wide school boycotts of 1964. She is married to Norman Hill National CORE leader.

According to David Evanier, "Velma Hill earned her M.E.D. from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education in 1968. After leaving Harvard, she led the paraprofessionals, a trade union program organized by the United Federation of Teachers that opened the door for low income, predominantly black and Hispanic women to enter the teaching profession. Today there are over a million paraprofessionals across the country."
