Dear ,

Thank you for being part of the BlackHer Community!

BlackHer Shero of the Week

This week, we were thrilled to catch up with Karen Boykin-Towns, vice chair of the board of the NAACP, the nation's "oldest and boldest" civil rights organization.  Boykin-Towns also served as a corporate executive at Pfizer. She reminded us that we can't be complacent in the fight for justice nor can we be distracted by praise.  We must join together and use our unique gifts to create social change. 

Check her out!
