Nancy 10,with her little brother Fred and Dad Thomas Finley Lee at her home in Bloomingburg, Ohio
Being a light-complexioned African-American woman living in the realties of America prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1965, ... is Nancy Harriette Lee as one of the first women of African-American heritage to graduate from the University of Pittsburgh, . was able as an enlightened and educated woman to view the Pittsburgh Region from the mid-1920s to the mid-1990s. Her views on how to be helpful to others were not restricted to empirical data studies by self-styled experts on the lives of "the least of us" ... past, present and future. To be sure about it, she was generally shunned and avoided by men and women whose differing views were grounded in economic and political power Nancy and no other African-American possessed.
Nancy was a social worker who kept a workbook of subjects and topics that she observed, read and often wondered about. To be absolutely sure about what America was all about during the years of Nancy's professional life, one can review the views of other professionals in her generation. They were Nancy Lee's witnesses about what she perceived. And, we have included her own summary of works that were important in her life, some of which is duplicated in our other menus.
We have also added a special menu that addresses what were considered matters of great dismay to her.
