DSU’s Alumni Society’s Art Festival in the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Center, showcased art they created.
One such artist, the Rev. Dr. Geraldine J. Jones, is a 1961 graduate who majored in sociology.
She has published books containing poems she has been writing since the fifth grade.
Her books include “From Our Hearts to Yours” and From “My Heart to Yours.”
“As a young person, we didn’t have TV. I would pick up a book and read it. Books took me places, and I loved them,” says Jones.
“I was fascinated by poems and books. I wrote my first poem in either the fifth or sixth grade. My favorite poem is titled ‘From My Heart to Yours.’ I wrote it when I was here [DSU] as a social worker.”
