About Sarah Lee Levy-Brown

Bio 1 : Sarah Lee Brown Fleming (1875–1963) was an African American educator, social and community activist and the first African American teacher in the Brooklyn school system.

Her most notable published work is the novel Hope's Highway (1918). It is a tale of racial uplift in which education and integrity persevere over racism and despair.

Bio 2 : The first black teacher in the Brooklyn school system, Sarah Lee Brown Fleming (1875-1963) is known as an educator and social and community activist, but few know her as a writer. Therefore, her published work has received little critical attention. Her novel Hope's Highway (1918) is a tale of racial uplift in which, through education and moral fortitude, a black man rises to become a "leader of his people." Also included in this volume is Fleming's collection of poetry, Clouds and Sunshine (1920), a work divided into three sections: the first offers poems on such general themes as love, patriotism, and religion; the second and third sections - entitled "Dialect Poems" and "Race Poems," respectively - treat racial themes.
