Thank You to the Coalition for United Community Action!

My humble thanks to the Coalition for United Community Action and president Carl Latimer for this fantabulous “Woman of the Decade/Legend of Print Media” award that was presented to me at the Coalition dinner June 7th at the Palmer House. The talented and gracious Cheryl Burton of Channel 7 , presented this award, and I cannot thank my sista’ enough for taking the time out to do so.
