on this last day of Black History Month, we are going to celebrate the great achievements of Dr. Olivia Hooker.  

at 100 years old, Dr. Hooker has lived through a lot and is still giving back strong.   she is the oldest survivor of the tulsa massacre of 1921, also known as Black Wall Street and was the first black women to serve active duty in the U.S. Coast Guard.  

Dr. Hooker received her PhD from University of Rochester in Psychology, where she was the only women and only African American.  she is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  

she was a professor at Fordham University and practicing Child Psychologist.   in a tribute to her contributions to psychology and society, she was the recipient of an American Psychological Association (APA) presidential citation in 2011.

she has been an inspiration to me as my mentor and friend.

i hope reading about her will bring you inspiration as well…
