This Black History Month, we will be honoring a cross-section of Union’s Black alums and faculty. Today, we honor the Rev. Dr. Ella P. Mitchell ’43 who would go on to be the 2nd African American woman to graduate from Union with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Education. She was the first woman to preach at the Hampton Minister’s Conference and the first woman to serve as Dean of Sisters Chapel at @Spelman_College in Atlanta. The year following her graduation, she married fellow Union graduate, the Rev. Dr. Henry H Mitchell ’44. Over their 64-year marriage, they both would become distinguished Christian educators, teaching multiple course at different seminaries over the year. #utsblackhistory
