Choose an imporant person from our history that has had an impact on the Human Services/Social Work field. I want you to choose someone that may have been overlooked – in other words, we know Jane Addams did a lot for Social Work, and she is mentioned extensively in our texts. Think about the people who you think I SHOULD be talking about in class. Many times, we have men and women from other races and cultures who have been overlooked.
Research historical figure using books, journals, articles, etc.
Discuss that person’s background
Explain that person’s contribution to the helping field(s) of Social Work, Human Services, Counseling
Examples of historical figures mentioned by Dr. Shannon Cambron and other Social Work programs:
Mary Church Terrell
Dorothy Height
George Edmund Haynes
Thyra J. Edwards
Lester Blackwell Granger
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
…and many more!
