2. Tina Rogers is continuing Our History is Our Strength series on influential Black American Women, that she will present each second Monday of the month on Women’s Spaces. Anna Julia Hayward Cooper (1858-1964) was a very prominent scholar and Suffragist who was the fourth African American woman to earn her doctorate, which she did at the Sorbonne in Paris. Her book A Voice from the South: By a Black Woman of the South, was widely acclaimed and because of it Anna Cooper is often called “the Mother of Black Feminism”. Vivian C. Harsh (1890-1960) is considered the “Mother of Black History,” because of her devotion in collecting literature on every phase of life of Black Americans. The Vivian Harsh Collection was assembled as she was head librarian at George Cleveland Hall Branch of the Chicago Public Library on Chicago’s South Side.
About our Guest: Tina Rogers is a native of Sonoma County. She has devoted her life in trying to understand this beautiful planet, the humans and the other species that share our world. A true humanitarian is what she represents, thorough research, education, and communication with other cultures allows her to see the “big picture.” While attending UC Davis, she turned her passion for the arts, fitness, and wellness into a popular example of master teaching not only to children but people of all ages.
Tina Rogers is a role model who enjoys using arts education and fitness, as tools to “crack-the-code” in child development that lasts a lifetime. Elaine and Ken have seen her presentation of Black History through the spoken word and dance and found the experience to be both educational and inspiring.

3. Rev. Dr. Patricial Keel addreses the metaphysics of the Easter story as our own inner story of Self. Each character in the Crucifixion and Resurrection portrayed in the the Gospel of John represent aspects within us. Even a Peter praised for his high faith betrays Jesus three times, as we so often betray our True Self. But the Divine is ever within us ready to mirror into the outer expressions of our life. Patricia has been making annual visits for classes in India and notes that Jesus must have learned from the mystics of the East. Patricia emphasizes that the Resurrection is about consciousness, not our body. As Jesus asked forgiveness for his persecutors, so we can give up resentment for love’s sake. Breath techniques help us to be present to reflect on issues we are experiencing and transforming them into Easter experiences of higher consciousness of compassion.
