Notably: It is Mary McLeod Bethune’s birthday (1875). She was born in Mayesville, South Carolina, became a teacher, founded her own school, the Daytona Normal and Industrial School for Negro Girls, which in 1931 merged with the Cookman Institute, when it was renamed Bethune-Cookman College, and eventually Bethune-Cookman University. It is also Marcel Proust’s birthday (1871). “Walter Benjamin,” Larry McMurtry once wrote, “said Proust was the Nile of language; in the same spirit one could call Faulkner — fittingly — its Mississippi; the Mississippi, at least, of the American language.”
