Women’s History Month Celebrates Michelle Obama

Women's History Month Celebrates Michelle Obama

It’s March, National Women’s History Month when we intentionally recognize the ongoing great contributions women have made to our nation. Frankly Speaking with Tyra G is celebrating this month with a twist. We are looking at phenomenal women and how we embrace and manage our universal experiences, our rainbows and clouds, and our courage and resolve. We are a journey, not a destination; a process, not an event. Even when we are still, we are motion; loving, serving, nurturing, encouraging, and empowering. We are love and love does. But sometimes, sometimes we get stuck between our no longer the familiar,…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

In her own words, “We had music growing up, 78RPM’s that evolved into 45RPM’s and, always, the radio.  The radio in my day, Black and white, played everything.  Gospel Spirituals, even some opera when Leontyne Price came along.  You could listen to R & B late at night or you could go to the other station and listen to popular music.  There was also jazz if the wind was right.  I feel so sorry for the kids who only hear one kind of music.  Where do your dreams come from? My dream was not to publish or to even be…

Women’s History Month Celebrates the Fact That Truth is of No Color

Women's History Month Celebrates the Fact That Truth is of No Color

 “The 19th Amendment had first been introduced in Congress in 1871. But Congress’ unwillingness to pass it meant women could only vote in states that had passed woman’s suffrage laws. By 1919 that had come to include 27 states, but not New Hampshire. Granite state women would have to wait for the state of Tennessee to become the 36th state to pass the 19th Amendment before they could vote for President in 1920.”[1]And there is so much more to do! Join me in a fascinating, energizing, educational, and empowering discussion about how African American women participated in the battle to…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women's History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women’s History Month is celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at great costs. Considering this is the year after the 100th year anniversary of WWI, we are reminded that war is a part of human history. My goal is to share diverse war stories across the spectrum of age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. The Vietnam war was my coming of age war. I became immersed in and confused by the concurrent war at home, about the necessity of US involvement, while at…

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Moving Forward with Patricia Borowski District 7610 Governor Elect

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Moving Forward with Patricia Borowski District 7610 Governor Elect

Patricia is a symbol of Rotary’s transforming commitment to diversity and inclusion. Women join the senior leadership ranks. It has been a process, not an event. Consider some of the journey’s highlights: 1987 On 4 May, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Rotary clubs may not exclude women from membership on the basis of gender. Rotary issues a policy statement that any Rotary club in the United States can admit qualified women into membership. Sylvia Whitlock, of the Rotary Club of Duarte, California, becomes the first female Rotary club president. 1989 At its first meeting after the 1987 U.S. Supreme Court…

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Kenyan Rotaract leader builds service bridges with Virginia.

Consider this: He walked 10 miles every Saturday with his family to borrow books from the nearest library growing up. He learned he could travel the world while sitting at home reading a book.

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Leadership in Action with District 7610 Governor Harry Henderson Jr.

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Leadership in Action with District 7610 Governor Harry Henderson Jr.

In 1930, Rotary Founder Paul Harris said, “The world is a changing place, and Rotary MUST change with it.” And it has. Maya Angelou said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you cannot change it, change your attitude.” And we have. Frances Hesselbein said, “Culture does not change because we desire to change it. Culture changes when the organization is transformed – the Culture reflects the realities of people working together every day.” And it has. Change is an external alteration. Transformation is an internal process. Both are necessary to sustain Rotary’s mission, Service Above Self. To deal…

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Healing the Wreakage with Dr. Sarah A. John in Haiti

“It’s true that, depending upon which community to ultimately decide to call a second home, you might just be the only medical professional available to meet the needs of multitudes.  The more remote the community in a developing country, the less likely it is to have a Western-trained medical professional.  You are likely to be very welcomed in your new community, but you should also expect to be viewed as an outsider and treated as such until you’ve established yourself and proven your abilities.  You’ll need to work with the community’s healers and find common ground in the provision of patient…

Rotary Opens Opportunites Through Service with Meesh Peters in Swaziland

Rotary Opens Opportunites Through Service with Meesh Peters in Swaziland

I echo the words of author and coach Iyanla Vanzant in her 2000 book, Until Today for her view of service. And I quote: “The greatest service I can offer is standing confidently in my power. It does not serve you or the world for you to behave as if you are powerless. You can think yourself into and out of any situation with which you are confronted. You have the ability to speak for yourself. You can defend yourself! Promote yourself. Encourage yourself. Teach yourself! Correct yourself. That is power. You have a heart. Through it, you can experience…

Black History Month Celebrates a Kaleidoscope of African Americans

Black History Month Celebrates a Kaleidoscope of African Americans

Did you know? The NAACP was founded on February 12, 1909, the centennial anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln? In the decades that followed, mayors of cities across the country began issuing yearly proclamations recognizing Negro History Week. By the late 1960s, thanks in part to the civil rights movement and a growing awareness of black identity, Negro History Week had evolved into Black History Month on many college campuses. President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of…
