Mamie Marie Walton-Jackson (1916-2009) was born in Jim Crow-era Georgia and spent her life
as a student, wife, educator, and mother. Jackson graduated from historically Black Clark
College in Atlanta, Georgia, and the following year, in 1941, went on to marry Jerry B.
Jackson. The birth of their only child, Durante Jackson, would follow six years later in
1947. She was employed as a home economics instructor, spending 1951-1952 at the segregated
