Abstract:

Curator and educator Hana Louise Stith was born on August 8, 1925 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and taught in Fort Wayne inner-city schools for thirty-six years. Earning her B.S. and M.S. degrees from St. Francis College, Stith became one of the first African Americans hired in the Fort Wayne Community Schools. After retiring from teaching, she co-founded and became president of the African/African American Historical Society with her husband Harold. She founded and was curator for the African/African American Historical Museum. Stith was the first female appointed to the Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission, serving 12 years under four mayors, and was the longest-serving member on the commission. She has served on numerous other city commissions and directed the Commission on Christian Education. She was a devoted member of the Turner Chapel A.M.E. Church, the oldest church organized by African Americans in the city of Fort Wayne.
