Ofeeyah Yisrael - Visiting Chesnutt Library on 2.25.2014 - Relation to the George Williams Founder of FSU

She was received by Director of Library Services, Bobby Wynn, and Head of Public Services and Information Literacy, Jan Whitfield. Yisrael made this comment when asked how often she visits Fayetteville State and if she was an FSU alumni:

I normally make it for Founders Day, but it’s been about two years [since I’ve been back]. Some of my other family members come for [Founders Day]. My parents and a lot of my family went to FSU, and most of them graduated as teachers. All of my aunts and uncles attended FSU.
