Black history at it's finest, here's a legacy story told by the grandchild of formerly enslaved grandparents.

Newspaper clippings, photographs, oral history, family Bible, and eyewitness accounts make this African American family story a historical treasure.


At nearly 100 years of age, Estelle Mitchell Adams, honors the life and legacy of her parents, Elijah Mitchell and Amanda Dunn Mitchell, who were land-owning pioneers and leaders of the African American community in Wheelock, Texas during the early 1900's. Though segregation and oppression were the norm at that time, her parents prospered, confronted the barriers to voting and educational rights, and led their family and neighbors in securing a productive life.

In 2024, Estelle Mitchell Adams was honored to be inducted into the African American Education Archives and Hall of Fame of Dallas County.
