Kibibi Voloria Mack-Shelton, visiting professor in Africana studies, recently signed copies of her book, Ahead of Her Time in Yesterday at the Miller F. Whittaker Library on the S.C. State University. The book chronicles the life of Geraldyne Perece Zimmerman, an educator, activist and community advocate.
The signing took place the day before Zimmerman’s 100th birthday celebration.
“The whole family owes a debt of gratitude to Kibibi for putting that together because we had trouble getting Mom talking about herself,” said D. Malone Zimmerman Jr., Zimmerman’s son.
The singing and celebration were covered in the Times and Democrat.
