Two of the Thompson sextuplets are graduating

On May 8, 1997 the first black sextuplets were born in Washington, D.C but one was stillborn.



Today 2 of the surviving sextuplets, Stella and Ann-Marie will be graduating from Washington D.C.’s Hospitality High School.  The other 3, Emily, Richard and Octavia, will be graduating next year.


Time sure does fly by. Two of the nation’s first black sextuplets are about to graduate from high school.

Stella Thompson is feeling great because she and her sister are graduating from D.C.’s Hospitality High School.

“Just sitting in that audience seeing two of my kids graduate, it’s a dream come true,” said their mother, Jackie Thompson.

It was just a dream back in 1997 as Jackie gave birth to six children. But sadly, one was stillborn.

Howard University offered the surviving sextuplets scholarships and Stella and Ann-Marie will be attending Howard starting in the fall.

Congrats to Stella and Ann-Marie!!
