Through an oral history interview, historian Louise Daniel Hutchinson explains she learned the value of education from her parents, community activism from her mother, and citizenship from her teacher Dr. Paul Phillips Cook at Miner Teacher's College. Born in Maryland, grew up in a family of nine, and raised Catholic, Hutchinson experienced history as happened through attending segregated churches and segregated schools; and witnessing the Brown versus Board of Education arguments in-person. She describes her perspective on living in Texas while attending Prairie View A&M University; and her experience working with Dorothy Porter Wesley when she was a student at Howard University. She talks about the visionaries she knew or met including Mary McLeod Bethune, Nannie Helen Burroughs; and her other sources of inspirations, including Anna Cooper and Mary Church Terrell. Hutchinson describes her experiences working for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Washington, D.C., National Portrait Gallery, Frederick Douglass Home for the National Park Service, and the Anacostia Museum. She also talks about the books she wrote about the exhibitions on Out of Africa and Anna J. Cooper, exhibitions she curated - Harlem Renaissance and The Frederick Douglass Years , and researching and writing about her family's history.
