31 Days of Notable Women-Flonzie Brown-Wright, author and lecturer


stack of books and inkwellFlonzie (Goodloe) Brown-Wright became the first black woman to be elected County registrar. She is now an author and lecturer.

She appeared in the movie “STANDING ON MY SISTERS’ SHOULDERS”, a powerful documentary that reveals a missing chapter in our nation’s record of the Civil Rights movement. It depicts the movement in Mississippi during the 1950 and 60s from the point of view of the courageous women who lived it and emerged as its grassroots leaders. Their living testimony offers a window into a unique moment when the founders’ promise of freedom and justice passed from rhetoric to reality for all Americans. A film every American should see and never forget.
