Rev. Robert and Sister Bernice Jones, at the Ford Museum honoring the legacy of Rosa Parks.
Robert B. Jones, Educator
Robert has more than 30 years of experience as a school and classroom presenter. In 2007 Robert received the prestigious "Keeping The Blues Alive Award" from the national Blues Foundation for his work in schools, and he has been recognized by organizations such as the Wayne County Council for Arts, History and Humanities and the Monroe County Library System for his work in schools.
Regardless of age, and whether working in a single classroom or with hundreds of students in an assembly setting, Robert's message is always the same, we need to celebrate the creativity and diversity of our shared culture. Our stories and our music have much to teach us about who we are, where we have come from, and where we are going.
