When Martha Ward Plowden saw that students at Crawford W. Long Middle School in Atlanta were having trouble finding books about African-American leaders and heroines, she decided to fill the gap by researching and writing her own books. She is a noted leader of both the African-American and educational communities of Atlanta and the state of Georgia.
Plowden has served on the executive committees for the Georgia State Conference of the NAACP, the Atlanta Branch of the NAACP, and the Atlanta Urban League. She was the first state coordinator, and later the chair, of the Academic, Cultural, Technological, and Scientific Olympics for the Georgia State NAACP. She received a doctorate of curriculum and instruction from Walden University and was the media specialist for Crawford W. Long Middle School, where she worked for twenty-four years.
A pillar of her community, Plowden has received numerous awards and commendations for her public service. She believes that the history of important African-American women should not only be told but also be told in a way that can reach audiences of all ages. She remains an active member of the Georgia Retired Educators Association and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
