Alethia Tanner
Alethia Tanner born Alethia Lethe Browning in Patuxent River, Maryland. She had two sister's named Sophia and Laurena Browning due to them she is greatly known today. They lived on a Plantation in Patuxent River, Maryland with their slave-holder Rachel Pratt. From her, Alethia was able to purchase her freedom for One Thousand and Four Hundred Dollar's after saving up her money from working in Washington garden, where she sold produce. She received her manumission papers on July 10, 1810. Soon after she was able to purchase her sister Laurena Browing along with her husband, their children and many of Alethia family and friends. Sophia had already bought her and husband George freedom for 400.00 from the Addison family. Where after he purchased her freedom as well.
Alethia was recognized as a leader in the early African American Community of the District. She was into Methodist Church because she enjoyed their strong analyzes of Slavery. Later, she and other African American slaves left the church, (finding it unwelcoming because they did not want to be confined in the galleria in the church. Alethia and her sister and her sister husband joined Israel Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church where they later purchased it because it was being sold in auction.
Altheia, George (her brother in law) and Nicholas Franklin and Moses Liverpool, started the first school for free black children in district Columbia called The Bell School. The Bell school failed from lack of funding and a small student base but that did not stop them from making The Resolute Beneficial Society School. This school like the last failed, due to segregation. After, the three just opened little private schools. Alethia safety was in danger due to the Snow Riot in August 1835, which started as a labor strike until they started to take frustrations out on free blacks. Her nephew John Frances Cook fled, but there was no record of her fleeing.

Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church at 1701 15th Street, NW in the Logan Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C. From Cultural Tourism DC: “The Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church was founded in 1841 as the First Colored Presbyterian Church by educator and pastor John F. Cook, Sr. (ca. 1810-1855). Its first home was Cook's small frame schoolhouse, Union Seminary (formerly the Smothers School) at 14th and H streets, NW. The first church building was erected on 15th Street between I and K streets in 1853. The church moved to 15th and R streets in 1918. The current building was completed in 1979. John F. Cook, Sr., the first black Presbyterian pastor in the city, was born enslaved. His aunt, Alethia Browning Tanner, purchased his freedom, in addition to that of other family members, with money raised from vegetables she marketed at Lafayette Square. In 1834 he became schoolmaster of Union Seminary, where he would establish the church and serve as its first pastor. A year later, Cook temporarily fled the city during the Snow Riot, when a white mob attacked and burned down the one-room schoolhouse. Rev. Henry Highland Garnet, an ardent abolitionist and orator, served as pastor of the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church from 1864 until 1866. When Congress passed the 13th Amendment officially ending slavery in the United States, Garnet was invited to preach a sermon before the House of Representatives. Rev. Francis J. Grimke (1850-1937) served the church as pastor for more than 50 years, beginning in 1877. He used his pulpit to call for civil rights, campaigned against racism in American churches, helped found the American Negro Academy in 1897, and worked toward the creation of the NAACP. The church has been a vital religious, educational, and social center. It was the first home of the Preparatory School for Colored Youth (later known as M Street High School), the city's first public high school and the first black high school in the United States. Sojourner Truth held benefits for the Colored Soldiers' Aid Society at the church. Seamstress and memoirist Elizabeth Keckley organized church members in an emancipation celebration in April 1863 to commemorate the first anniversary of the DC Emancipation Act.” On a side note, Francis Grimke’s wife was named Charlotte. The house she lived in from 1881 to 1886 is a National Historic Landmark.

Student Opinion Surveys are known by many students as an easy way to get out of the last 20 minutes of class. But the SOS forms, which have been at Central Michigan University for 40 years, are used by many different faculty members to change the way they run their classes.
