Mrs. Vernon spent her life educating, empowering and inspiring women through out the Tangipahoa and St. Helena Parishes. Mrs. Vernon let her light shine in all that she did and touched. I will never forget the times that I would visit with her and how we spent time talking. She was also an archivist that clipped and saved important newspapers articles about the local black folks that made the news.  She kept very good and detailed records for the churches and community meetings.

Please join host Antoinette Harrell as she discuss the important of preserving and teaching our own history.
