Feb 7- Clara "Mother" Hale
Human rights activist Clara "Mother" Hale founded the first and, at the time, the only black social services agency in America in 1975. Over the course of her life, Mother Hale received more than 370 awards for her work in the fight against AIDS and inner city drug use. It's because of people like Mother Hale that children from forgotten areas weren't forgotten. She gave them the nurturing they deserved. She did not let politics interfere with the greater cause of humanity.
