It shows (the love), I’m new at blogging as well. I just started seriously in April. Please keep it going. Best of luck. Also I think you had a post about a woman who fought against black people being lynched after she discovered that people were creating smear campaigns to justify their murders. Do you remember her name?

Mmm. Let me do some checking. I did do post about lynching last week. But I don’t think I featured any women specifically. Ida B Wells Barnett and Fannie Lou Hamer were two women who did a lot of advocacy I n regard to lynching. The NAACP did as well. I will check my posts to see if I have more info. Thanks.

I did do a little more checking on women who protested against lynching. Ida B. Wells Barnett was indeed very active in advocating lynching. Below is a website I found with more info about her anti lynching efforts.
Hope this info is helpful!

Read my blog on Dr. Drew. You can use it if you wish. I taught history for years and used great Black People in my class. Many great men and women were ignored. It is really a shame that history of today has tried to erase their greatness.

Thank you! I will check it out! That’s one of the reasons I started my blog is to share some little known facts and info!

Why can’t I find pictures of The University of West Tennessee College of Medicine and Surgery founded by Dr. Miles Lynk . It moved to Memphis in 1907 ? and closed in 1923

I was unable to find a photo of the school. It was called the University of West Tennessee Medical College. May require some more research perhaps with the state of TN to see if drawings are in their archives. It may also be unavailable because it was not affiliated with a larger college or university.

My Grandfather graduated and was a professor of Dental Surgery from this school. He worked with Dr. Lynk for a very long time. I have a photo showing all of the professors and graduates and other affiliates there, but no photos of the school grounds or its academics

That is AMAZING!! Have you tried searching the national archives website for a photo?
April 19, 2017 at 12:54 pm
Yes. The only info available is that Dr. Lynk started this school in another part of Tennessee and then moved the school to Memphis. His other achievements are documented but very little about this school. I really wanted more info for my kids and grandkids. I really wanted them to know some of their family history

There has got to be something available. But it is possible that he was renting a facility where the school was housed and did not actually own property. But there has got to be some sort of Trail. It would be interesting to know if there are any relatives of him or his wife that are still alive and living in the area. His wife was a very accomplished woman as well.

Whom ever I am talking to thank you. I will try to find some of Dr. Lynk’s relatives and see if they can help me. Thanks for the suggestion

My name is Enid Gaddis. I post the blog articles. I think it is so cool that you have a connection to Dr. Lynk! I wish you well on your search. If you find info, let me know. I’d love update my post with any updated info.

Thanks Enid, Glad to know you. Hope you can help me .

Hi! Just wondering if you were able to find any additional info on Dr. Lynk you were seeking. I was reviewing some of my old messages and came across yours. I know its been a while since we communicated. Just wondering if you found more info. Happy New Year!

Thank you for providing much needed but rarely taught facts on the Black and African diaspora. This site should be required reading in 21st Century schools..
