The Legacy of Pauline Bray Fletcher

Last week was Nurse’s Week, and Camp Fire Alabama was so thrilled to partner with the Birmingham Black Nurses Association in an effort to honor Pauline Bray Fletcher. Ms. Fletcher, the founder of Camp Fletcher, was the first black nurse in the state of Alabama. Last Monday, we were able to pay tribute to her by hosting a screening of The Legacy of Pauline Bray Fletcher, a documentary about her life and work, at The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. We then joined the BBNA for their annual wreath laying ceremony at the Pauline Bray Fletcher memorial in Kelly Ingram Park. It was a privilege to be a part of this amazing event, and we are so happy to join with others in honoring the life of this amazing woman.
