The Work of a Matriarch

The Work of a MatriarchEpisode 79–The Work of a Matriarch

 

The Working Woman’s Radio Show ended Women’s History Month with a special presentation called ‘The Work of a Matriarch’.

This special episode is a tribute to the woman who affected my personal history the most–my mother, Joanna Johnson Styles.

The feature is based on a story that I wrote entitled ‘A Portrait of an African-American Matriarch’, which describes the journey my mother took to become the extraordinary woman that she is, today.

My mother not only transcended her own history, but her countless sacrifices and selfless acts of service changed the course of history for our family.

Heroic and ambitious, she has laid a firm foundation and gave our family the tools for success. Her faith, her focus, and her fearlessness make her a beautiful portrait of an African-American matriarch.
