    What neither Marilynne not Esanam are not telling you is that Marilynne went on to become a wonderful teacher and then a Principal at an elementary school. She has made an incredible contribution to education.

    I was also told that Esanam went to Law School.

    Thank you for this history.

    Essie’s former history teacher
