Our featured speakers for Thursday, January 9, 2020 are Chad Evans Wyatt and Mary Evelyn Porter. They will be sharing about RomaRising misson by creating a moving and captivating painting of a group of people who don’t exist in society because they have been pushed aside in history and to the present time. 

RomaRising is an extension of Chad Evans Wyatt’s involvement with Czech culture, and the realization that a minority there - on discovery, everywhere in Europe - had been marginalized, even persecuted as had African Americans in this country.  This began as an expression of hope, the certainty that human aspiration can surmount the greatest of barriers. 

RomaRising is now two authors.  The second is Mary Evelyn Porter, who creates vivid narratives of each person portrayed in the project.  Together, Chad and Mary Evelyn continue forward, the work expands exponentially.

On January 2, 2020, club member Eileen McGuckian will talk about an article she has been working on….  the role of Rockville in one of the first legal challenges by the NAACP to confront unequal pay for teachers.  The leading figures in this local 1930s story are Thurgood Marshall, a young civil rights attorney, and William B. Gibbs, Jr., teaching principal of Rockville Colored Elementary School.
 
Eileen McGuckian was executive director of Peerless Rockville for 30 years and is passionate about preserving historic places for the benefit of future generations. In 1988, she was one of the first two women to join Rockville Rotary Club, with the uncommon classification of "Historic Preservation." Thus far, she has written 6 books on Rockville history, including Rockville: Portrait of a City, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Rockville: A Guide to Rockville MD in the 1920s, and The Sesquicentennial of Rockville: Local Government at 150 years.  She enjoys leading tours around historic Rockville.
