Born in 1913, her direction in life was preordained by a family of educators, Mary became a respected teacher and eventually the first Negro principal of a white school in Charleston, West Virginia. The larger video will describe a century of civil rights events that shadow memorable moments in Mary Snow's life. This, shorter, video touches on a a few of those moments. The video was prepared primarily for use during a November, 2012 ceremony wherein the name of a new elementary school was changed officially to Mary C. Snow West Side Elementary.
