"Educator Charlotte Hawkins Brown on her wedding day, 1912. Founder of the Palmer Memorial Institute in North Carolina, Ms. Brown was also a suffragist who worked for black women to have the same rights black men and white women were fighting for in the early 20th century. She was also the great aunt of singer Natalie Cole. In fact, she raised Natalie’s mother Maria and her sisters (her brother’s children) when their mother died in childbirth."
