Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth


This is an emergency. I was doing research of this famous Black Woman,Leona Ford Washington, and noticed not many people know about her. This  lady had changed the thoughts of may El Pasoans. Washington couldn't teach here in El Paso EVEN if she had two college degree so she had to teach in Las Cruces NM. Washington would encourage and believed in her students. Washington was honored and the Missouri Community Center was renamed. El Pasoans don't know who this lady is, not only that, around the U.S.people  dont know who this lady is. I need the Latinitas girls in El Paso and Austin to show people who Leona Ford Washington was and what she had done in El Paso. Please respond and tell me if you are encourage to help me with this quest.

Thank You
