Way to go Kimberly and Esteban!

Two SU students revive their native cultures by creating children’s stories based on Mayan and Aztec mythology and lore. Kimberly Arriaga-Gonzalez and Esteban Garcia-Ailon, both of Mesoamerican descent, have combined their skills in creative writing and education for a research project with their mentor, Dr. Cristina Cammarano, that they hope will allow Latinx children to hear their own stories.

As Joseph R. Biden Jr. is inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States today, the campus community recalls when the longtime U.S. Senator from Delaware delivered then Salisbury State University’s Commencement address in December 2000. He was welcomed to Salisbury by Dr. Janet Dudley-Eshbach, who was the University’s President at that time. Some 520 students received bachelor’s and master’s degrees during that fall graduation ceremony at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center. Were you one of those alumni? President-elect Joe Biden is no stranger to the Delmarva region, growing up in New Castle County and serving Delaware for more than three decades. #WaybackWednesday #InaugurationDay #Inauguration2021

In 1959, Martin Luther King Jr was the commencement speaker at Maryland State College—now the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. At that point, he was best known for leading the Montgomery bus boycotts, but the Daily Times covered the historic visit with only an 11-paragraph, picture-less article. Learn more on the UMES website (where this photo of MLK and President Williams was borrowed from): https://www.umes.edu/125/Content/Stories/Dr--Martin-Luther-King-Jr--visits-Maryland-State/
Join us in taking time today in reflecting on King’s life and legacy, and what it means for families across the Eastern Shore and throughout the country he fought to improve.

Allowing the campus to remain open took the efforts of many thoughtful and innovative minds at SU to meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to careful planning and swift action, SU was able to become the only institution in the USM to continue on-campus operations throughout the fall semester and was the only institution to conduct its own COVID-19 testing. Many departments, partners and volunteers contributed to these efforts, and their hard work and resilience allowed SU to end the year healthy and strong.

At SU, we don’t just give our students the knowledge they need to succeed in their fields, but the critical thinking skills they need to succeed wherever they go in life.

A Mighty Girl

Harriet Powers, the folk artist known as the "mother of African-American quilting," was born on this day in 1839. Powers was born into slavery near Athens, Georgia, and spent her early life on a plantation where she first learned how to sew. Her quilts are considered among the finest examples of 19th century Southern quilting, although only two of her quilts, both of which were made after the Civil War, survive today. Her quilts are a unique blend of both European quilting traditions and African textile arts, and were made using both appliqué and piecework. The two surviving quilts, the Bible Quilt from 1886 and the Pictorial Quilt from 1898, contain numerous pictorial squares that depict either biblical scenes or celestial events. Powers also created a key for both quilts, explaining the meaning behind each panel. Today, her quilts are displayed in the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.

For an inspiring picture book about Harriet Powers, we highly recommend "Sewing Stories" for ages 5 to 8 at https://www.amightygirl.com/sewing-stories-harriet-powers

For a fascinating book for book for adults about her work, we recommend "This I Accomplish: Harriet Powers' Bible Quilt and Other Pieces" at http://amzn.to/2zNl0QQ

For more books about the significance of quilts to enslaved African Americans, we recommend "Show Way" for ages 5 to 9 (https://www.amightygirl.com/show-way) and "Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt" for ages 6 to 9 (https://www.amightygirl.com/sweet-clara-and-the-freedom-quilt)
