about us

"Education must not simply teach work - it must teach Life." W. E. B. DuBois

In 1976, the Mothers of Many, in collaboration with the Black Belt Arts & Cultural Center, invested their time and treasure in the idea that all children deserved the best available education. That is the vision that McRae-Gaines’ staff, teachers, Board of Directors and parents want to guarantee for future generations of Selma’s working families.
Our Board of Directors is a group of community leaders committed to the mission of the school “to provide quality education for every child, from the least to the greatest.”
We are always looking for dedicated individuals to join our ranks; if interested, please contact our Board Chair here.
