True Essence Warriors


Essence Magazine has released their November issue

This issue is NEAR and DEAR to my heart because in the Womens Warrior feature, 
Dr. Darlene V. Willis and Mrs. Marsha Dodson 
have been selected as one of the 

These two phenomenal women are taking direct action to reduce and eliminate the education crisis that is plaguing school systems all around the country. With the utilization of poetry, real life statistics and over 25+ years in the experience in education, these two women are bridging the gap to ensure that ALL CHILDREN have access to a quality education and have the choice of college. Their business, Empowering Parents was started to bridge the parent/school divide, empower parents all around the nation and bring about the necessary change in our education system.

Also, if you feel so moved and would like to see ESSENCE do a full story on their efforts of empowering parents around the country then please feel free to send an email thanking them for selecting us for the list and ask them to consider doing a full story on us.   You can email your responses/requests to and ask that your comments be sent to the Editor in Chief – Angela Burt-Murray.  The more responses, the better chance of a full story for these deserving women.
