Throughout February, Pfeiffer highlighed the contributions and achievements of several noteworthy alumni, faculty and students as we observed Black History Month. Founder Emily Prudden, a probable late 19th-century visionary, set a socially progressive example for Pfeiffer and racial integration by establishing a number of home-based schools, nearly half of which were dedicated to the education of disadvantaged black students.
On Mon., Feb. 18, original Freedom Writers member Tiffony Jacobs spoke at Henry Pfeiffer Chapel to a group of students, faculty and staff.
As a high school sophomore, Ms. Jacobs joined the Freedom Writers, a group of students in Ms. Erin Gruwell's English class at Wilson High School in Long Beach, Calif., who wrote anonymous journal entries about the challenges of living in their community. She found strength and determination to achieve a successful future through Ms. Gruwell's emphasis on Holocaust education.
