     T. Thomas Fortune was a stalwart for social justice. Born into slavery in 1856, he became one of the most influential American journalists and newspaper publishers of the 19th and 20th centuries. 

     Fortune christened his home in Red Bank, New Jersey, “Maple Hall,” where he and his family resided between 1901-1915.  Here he entertained the great African American leader Booker T. Washington and other prominent figures of the time.
