CPT Dovey Johnson Roundtree

2018-12-12 Roundtree.jpg

Today we want to honor Dovey Johnson Roundtree, a trailblazing lawyer, minister, advocate and inaugural member of the WAAC. She broke barriers, reaching the rank of Captain and recruited so many black women she helped set the groundwork for desegregation in the military. She used the GI Bill to attend Howard Law School, and in 1955 she won a landmark case to end segregation in the bus system!

We honor you, Dovey Roundtree.
