March is Women’s History Month, so I am reposting a link to an article about one of my longest friends who was recently and appropriately recognized as one of the inspirational women in American history. The Honorable Constance Slaughter-Harvey, Esquire, has a list of firsts as long as they come, each of them special and important, but I know her well enough to understand that the first which matters most to her in a lifetime of accomplishment is being mother to Constance Olivia and grandmother to Tre’.
Connie is one of many women who stitched the fabric of my life along with my force-of-nature mother, my role model sister, grandmothers, nieces, aunts, cousins, teachers, and all of my women friends. I will not overlook my female students who are already starting to write their own pages of history and will continue to do so. While I honor the men in my life, I was raised by women and formed by their sacrifice and their perseverance. This month and every month is women’s history month for me. Thank you all.
