Especially since March is Women’s History, MAKERS.com is a great site to visit. Part of the unprecedented digital video and broadcast initiative responsible for the documentary “MAKERS: Women Who Make America,” which aired on WGBY in February, MAKERS.com has numerous interviews that the New York Times described as “often fascinating.”
Whether for you or students, these short, inspiring videos include each woman sharing the most meaningful advice she every received. Among the many interviews are those of Marian Wright Edelman, founder of Children’s Defense Fund, which includes her experiences surrounding the death of MLKing, and Ophelia Neal, World Health Care Advocate and daughter of actress Partricia Neal and children’s author Raul Dahl, discussing her mother’s strength during great adversity and her own work in Haiti.
And at MAKERS.com you can also help honor women who are innovating the classroom and developing the next generation of MAKERS by nominating a teacher for a $10,000 grant!
