Black Girl Scouts!

Were you a Girl Scout? What are your stories?

“African American girl scouts listen to instructor talk about first aid,” Joyner Digital Library, East Carolina University, http://digital.lib.ecu.edu/2710, December 1955 – February 1956.

Girl Scouts have a long history going back to to 1912. African American girls were also part of the movement dating back to the 1950’s as seen in this photo, and even earlier. Learn more at Celebrating 95 Years of Black History at Girl Scouts of the USA.
