Great quiz and it could not have come at a better time. I'm on the committee at church for our Black History/Ethnic program on 2/23 and this information was precious because it gave some little known details about each person. They will be an added attraction to the program. Also I thoroughly enjoy Trivia Tuesday, please keep up the good work:)

I think Trivia is a part of the Hopkins Happenings. Even though I dont know all the answers it is giving me facts that are interesting and every Tuesday I learn something new. .
