Witherspoon Presbyterian Church, Princeton, NJ, Co-Director, Bernice Johnson Reagon

About Bernice, it’s hard to say in words, I think she lives the kind of thing that she is trying to convey to them—pride in race and dignity. They can see it in her… She is a woman of tremendous charm and ability. On top of this, she has the gift of being able to communicate with the kids…”
—Rev Harold Thomas, Pastor
Witherspoon St Church

“All Witherspoon Street was startled one day to see an informal parade of girls carrying loaves of braided bread. Proud of their handiwork, they were carrying their bread the longest way home.”
