MARY MCLEOD BETHUNE’S STATUE:

The Mary McLeod Bethune statue is located near the Performing Arts Center (PAC), and is the first spot on campus you must stop to get a photo. The statue is a replica from a picture Dr. Bethune taken while in Washington, D.C. The cane she is shown carrying was given to her by First-Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. This cane was a family heirloom passed down through the Roosevelt family and given to Dr. Bethune after the death of President Roosevelt. As many may know, Dr. Bethune and the Roosevelt’s were very close, and Dr. Bethune served as a member of The Black Cabinet during Roosevelt’s presidency. Although Dr. Bethune did not need the cane for any medical reason, she is often photo’d using the cane as an accessory to enhance her since of style. This is often the place where organization’s will take photos after events such as Inductions or Academic Award Ceremony’s.
