Area Educator Releases An Astounding Book on Her Homeland Downhome
Adelaide Banks is a Black History and Race Relations Educator. She believes that focusing on these essential areas will enlighten understanding for applying corrective strategies to improve human relations. Ms. Banks is a former Sociology instructor pulling from training and scholarly perspectives to offer practical race relations instruction. She holds degrees in Sociology from Northern Michigan University and North Carolina State University.
Ms. Banks shares a belief with Dr. Carter G. Woodson, founder of Black History Month. "Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history."
Born in Granville County, NC, Ms. Banks identifies this rural county as Downhome. Her military offspring upraising, rural farm connections, adult residences in Detroit and Atlanta, then back to North Carolina pointed all roads in her varied careers and experiences to an understanding of God-inspired truths to light our paths toward love, respect and "doing no harm to one another".
