#OTD 18 November 1968 Margaret A. Haywood, council member, attorney and Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority member, gave a speech at Ruth K. Webb ES (Mount Olivet Rd and Holbrook St NE). She was one of the speakers for the “community day” program.
Haywood attended Cardozo SHS and Robert Terrell Law School. She also filed amicus briefs for what would become the District of Columbia vs John R. Thompson Co., which would uphold the 1872 law that outlawed whites-only policies in public accommodations.
