Etta Cowan Gives to NKU

Imagine the life of this woman. She could remember middle aged men who were born slaves. Her war was WWI. She was middle aged when she woke up to hear of Pearl Harbor. She was given the right to vote - twice. She was in her 60s during the 60s. She woke up early to cook for rich white people and lived longer than ever imagined. Almost 40,000 days from start to finish.

From what I could tell there were no children and no family. Just a church and a university.

Stay You.
