The funeral for former Prince George’s County executive Wayne Curry is set for Thursday morning, July 10. Here are the details.
In addition to other accomplishments, Curry worked as a teacher and an early childhood educator as a young man. Moreover, according to The History Makers:
Curry grew up in Cheverly, Maryland, a bedroom community outside of Washington, D.C., where his family helped to integrate the neighborhood in the 1950s. He and his older brother also integrated the schools, being the first blacks to attend Cheverly-Tuxedo Elementary in 1959; he earned his high school diploma from Bladensburg High School in 1968.
May his memory be for a blessing.
Thomas Byrd, host of the Education Town Hall and lodge brother to Curry, will be paying his respects Thursday morning. As a result, We Act Radio will air a repeat edition of The Education Town Hall at 11 a.m. The program will return to live broadcast on the 24th. [Note: this is updated from earlier announcement.]
