Teaching Helping others: The story of Fanny Jackson Coppin

Helping others: The story of Fanny Jackson Coppin

Fanny Jackson Coppin was born a slave. After attaining her freedom, she pursued an education and eventually attended Oberlin College, the only college in America at the time that would accept Black students. She took classes there, but she also taught them. After graduation, Coppin went on to start her own school and help people around the world.
