Clip | 1m
Selena Sloan Butler (b. 1872) started her own in-home kindergarten when she had trouble finding a suitable preschool for her son. Later she formed the first chapter of the National Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers at Atlanta’s Yonge Street Elementary School. The organization became national in 1926, and in 1970 it merged with its counterpart in the white community, becoming the PTA.
