2021 Calendar

The 2021 calendar features the Jenkins Institute. Formerly known as the “Jenkins Orphanage,” this establishment was founded in Charleston by the late Reverend Daniel Joseph Jenkins in December 1891. What started as a simple act of kindness from a husband and wife taking in four orphans eventually turned into a musical empire that today has inspired some of the most famous African American talents ever known.

The 2021 calendar honorees’ commitment to improving the lives of others through their respective areas of expertise is admirable. With each page you turn, you will be reminded of the legacies they have left to inspire future generations.
