Educator. The co-founder of the National Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), in 1911 she founded the National Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers (NCCPT). President Herbert Hoover appointed her to the White House Conference on Child Health and Protection in 1929. During World War II, she organized the Red Cross's first black women's chapter of "Gray Ladies." When Congress merged the NCCPT with the National PTA in 1970, Butler was named as one of the organization's founders. Her portrait currently hangs in the Georgia State Capitol. (bio by: Evening Blues)
