She takes the time to design each workshop, each technical assistance project, and each speaking engagement to meet the specific needs of the requesting organization.

In addition to her many accomplishments, Dr. Bryant has received several honors and recognition over the years.

While these honors are indeed meaningful, Maxine’s greatest honor has been the privilege of parenting her daughter, Mayosha (31) who passed in November, 2011, her son, Jonathan (27), and her step-daughter, Khalilah Shabazz (41).

About The Tougaloo Nine:
At 11 a.m. on March 27, 1961, nine students from the historically black Tougaloo College walked into the all-white Jackson (Miss.) Public Library. Joseph Jackson Jr., their leader, approached the circulation desk.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tougaloo Nine were a group of African-American students at Tougaloo College who participated in civil disobedience by staging sit-ins of segregated public institutions in Mississippi in 1961.


Voices of Wisdom is named so, to keep the voice of Rachel Berry alive through our platform. She created the group Voices of Wisdom because everyone knows something that someone else needs to know, officially know as The VOW Network on Facebook.
