SISTERHOOD SHARING SESSIONS | BLACK HISTORY MONTH | UNSUNG WOMEN WARRIORS-JANE ELIZABETH
Black History Month
This Black History Month, we take a special look towards all of the unsung Women Warriors across generations, recognizing and celebrating the beauty, that is Black Women. Those amazing women who throughout history, despite crippling inequities, have inspired and continue to inspire hope and perseverance through the measure of their own life experiences and resilience.
Women Warriors-Jane Elizabeth
Jane was born in 1942, in a small town in the deep south. She was a career Health Care Professional, committing her life to the service of others for over 25 years before retiring. She is a self-proclaimed Poet, dabbling in the art of words and expression through writing poetry since she was a young girl. Throughout the different stages of her life, she has possessed the traditional and socially assigned titles and roles of Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother.
Jane is an inherent member of the diverse and complex community of unsung Black Women Warriors. She grew up during a time when racial tensions were at their peak. Despite the overwhelming disparities in the African-American community comparatively, she was resilient. Life has thrown Jane many curveballs. Each time, she managed to grab hold, and redirect the trajectory of each obstacle, clearing the pathway to survive another day and inevitably another provocation of life as a Black Women and Mother, during one of the most unstable eras in our nation’s history.
The process of having to continually navigate through the unavoidable and uneven terrains of social and economic injustices, and the mental turbulence it provokes, and coming out on the other side, like many Black Women, has earned Jane our honorary title of warrior.
Foremost, for Jane as a parent, is knowing she is leaving a lineage of empowered, integrity-minded, socially responsible, human beings, thus elevating their opportunities to follow their own path for happiness.
