Sharon Moore Sings
We stand on the shoulders of those members who have gone before us. One of the foundational leaders, Dr. Carl Marbury continues to work tirelessly with the Association and the community.
We have been fortunate, over the past few years, to have outstanding leaders and speakers at our reunions. We have danced the Wobble. traded war stories, accomplishments and shared similar experiences . DeVoris Ragland-Pierce was the speaker at 2015 Reunion.
A full account of previous reunions can be viewed under the Reunion Dropdown Tab. At the 2019 Reunion, Mary Pearl Russell delivered an original poem entitled “The Legacy of Robert Russa Moton High School 1948 -1970.”. That poem was adopted as the official school poem at the 2019 General Assembly. During the early days, we even marched in parades. Charlie Brown was the head drum major and our 2018-2019 President, Alma England was the head majorette on the video clip. To feature some of the members of the Association who have made major contributions in their chosen fields, a section entitled “Spotlight” has been created. Please consider adding your name and accomplishments to this section.
