Honoring African American Educators and Advocates
In celebration of Black History Month, National PTA is honoring Selena Sloan Butler, who founded the National Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers (NCCPT) to advocate for children, especially African American children in segregated communities. After working side-by-side for every child through the Civil Rights movement, National PTA and NCCPT signed a Declaration of Unity and merged in 1970. Learn more about Selena, the Unification, and the history of National PTA.
