My mother, Doris Graham, was in the news quite a bit during her years at Eastern High School in Detroit. Some were from the school paper, “The Indian”. Some were from “The Detroit Tribune”, a weekly black newspaper published by my mother’s cousins, James McCall and his wife Margaret. I have other articles “starring” my mother but I am just using those from 1937 – 1940. The others will appear later. The articles were saved by my grandmother Fannie, Doris’ mother. The writing on them is hers.

You have so many wonderful pieces of family memorabilia. Your mother’s smile is amazing.
It is great you have so many clippings from the actual papers. Your mother had such a wonderful smile. Thanks for sharing these.
What a great collection of clippings. Your grandmother was obviously very proud of her daughter’s achievements. I’d love to know what was in that caption of her dancing.
Me too! I think half of it shows but what the other half…?
Wow! Good looking and smart! I’d say you have some powerful genes, there, Kristin!
