“GUTSY” HILLARY CLINTON HONORED BY
October 18, 2019
“The very serious function of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining over and over again your reason for being,” – novelist Maya Angelou.
Hillary Rodham Clinton is arguably America’s quintessential gutsy woman. She has had the grit and grace to serve as the nation’s former First Lady, a U.S. senator, President Barack Obama’s Secretary of State and a Democrat presidential candidate, who nearly lost to President Donald Trump. She has also co-authored
The Book of Gutsy Women
, which profiles her courageous political journey, and those of others like her.
Because of her stellar, if not remarkable career achievements, Secretary Clinton, was praised and honored at the 2019 SCLC annual convention by SCLC First Lady, Cathelean Steele. She was presented with the civil rights organization’s top trophy, it’s Realizing The Dream award at its 61st national July convention at Atlanta’s Hyatt hotel entitled:
Maintaining The Global Village…Housing, Health, and Our Common Humanity.
“I’m so happy to stand here with Secretary Clinton,” said Mrs. Steele during her SCLC Women’s Empowerment Luncheon. “She has realized many, many dreams and that’s the epitome of an empowered woman. I have been honored to sit in her office when she was Secretary of State, and to be in her presence several times. I don’t care what the Electoral College votes say, she is my President.”
