Art Acquisition Project РLocal

The Fort Lauderdale (FL) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, accepted the challenge of soliciting funds to make the Dr. Kathleen C. Wright sculpture become a reality.  It is now a reality which is a fitting tribute to Dr. Kathleen Cooper Wright who has the unique distinction of being the first Black to serve on the Broward County School Board and first Black female to serve on any school board in Florida. She was also a cherished member of The Fort Lauderdale (FL) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. The sculpture now proudly stands adjacent to the KC Wright Broward County School Board administrative offices in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
