Turning Pages: Giving Praise to African Women

Updated: May 15

On this third month of Black History, we give praise to African Women, the tie that binds us together. We acknowledge the mothers, aunts, sisters and all those who have prayed, worked, written, sung, and acted on the behalf of African Women everywhere.
