Eleven Oliver Knight's "A Man of Valor" at the National Afro-American Museum

Evelyn Oliver Knight attended the opening of "Yours for Race and Country: Reflections on the Life of Colonel Charles Young" at the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center, Wilberforce, OH. 

Her piece, "A Man of Valor," was created following an invitation from Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi to participate in this exhibit. As a 1979 graduate of Wilberforce University, Evelyn had heard of Col. Young's contribution as a former professor of Military Science, Chemistry, English, French, Math and Music. Col. Young achieved unparalleled success in a variety of arenas which made his life worthy of this wonderful exhibit.
