Message from the Executive Director

20140926_221025The 99th catalog coverASALH Convention in Memphis, TN, was a great success.  Not only did I distribute over 500 Women in Arts & Women in Business Catalogs, introducing people to our organization, members, and business associates, but I delivered my paper Blues Women: The First Civil Rights Workers to an enthusiastically responsive audience in the Louis XVI Room at The Peabody Hotel, on Thursday, September 25, 2014.

I visit the infamous Blues mecca BEALE STREET, where I listened to the music of two lovely vocalists Adrianne Dotson and Shay-Renae, who agreed to play songs from our compilation CDs III and IV on her radio show! The most exciting news is that the 100th ASALH Convention will be in Atlanta in 2015, and I will be on the Volunteer Committee and invite our WIJSF Atlanta members to join me in supporting this tremendous organization.
