Against many family struggles she advanced herself in many fields.

I knew her uncle, Father Robert Harris, and her mother, Aida, well. Muriel, an author of several best selling children's books with her Husband illustrator Tom Feelings. Her work as a founder of a local group of storytellers, her work with African American History and its preservation at Temple University and her work in Civil Rights, as well as teaching in Kenya and Guyana with her husband, and community work in Philadelphia qualify her to be remembered as an honoree by Oxfam.

This story was submitted as part of Oxam America's International Women's Day initiative to honor women working to right the wrongs of poverty and hunger. Honorees are selected independently by Oxfam supporters. Selection does not imply endorsement or other support from Oxfam America.
