A Message from Our Commissioner Honoring African Americans in Social Services
Dear Colleagues,

African American History Month is a time to honor the contributions of African Americans in the formation of our national identity. This year’s theme is Education, chosen by the Association for the Study of African American Life & History.

Here at the New Jersey Department of Children and Families we recognize that education appears in many shapes and forms throughout African American history – from the 1854 foundation of the first African American college, Lincoln University, to 1954’s Supreme Court ruling on desegregation.

Social work and education share a long history. So this month I would like to reflect upon African American pioneers in social services.
Social activist Dorothy Height earned both Bachelor's and Master's degrees from New York University in only four years. She advocated globally for minority and women’s rights while teaching in India and South Africa. Starting her career as a social worker, Height eventually became one of the leading figures of the Civil Rights Movement.

Throughout his life George Edmund Haynes persistently sought higher education. He earned his Master’s from Yale University and became the first African American graduate of the New York School of Social Work. Haynes’ social work brought national spotlight to the quality of education in African American communities. Eventually Haynes taught social science at Fisk University, where he would begin to shape what we recognize as social work today.

It is impossible to imagine doing what we do every day without courageous people like Dorothy Height and George Edmund Haynes providing the bedrock of work.
