Hayford was an education innovator in Sierra Leone, schooled in England and Germany. She was dedicated to the education of young women, and in the face of opposition from her own Creole elite, she founded a school for girls. When Hayford came to America to raise funds for her school, she met with Walter White, James Weldon Johnson, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Nannie Helen Burroughs. The account is taken from memoirs, papers, letters, and newspapers. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
