Emerging HOPE Ministries Presents - Women’s History Month

Emerging HOPE Ministries Presents

Women’s History Month Theme: Honoring Virtuous Queens Host: Dr. Pamela Robinson





Women’s History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to United States history. From Marian Croak to Patricia Bath, Dr. Emilie M. Townes, Dr. Barbara Holmes, the timeline of women’s history milestones stretches back to the founding of the United States.

The actual celebration of Women’s History Month grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa.

Kamala Harris. Ava Duvernay. Viola Davis. Names of a select few Black women who in the past year or two have shattered ceilings and achieved the impossible in their chosen fields. But they are not the only examples of #BlackWomanMagic – Black women making strides and challenging the status quo.

This year, several Black women have made history in theological education. They are individuals who, for the most part, are already trailblazers in a field where historically, Black women are rarely considered authorities on topics from preaching to pastoral care, to systematic theology, to Biblical Hermeneutics -that's biblical interpretation.

But now they have achieved even more. In some instances, they are the firsts – first deans, first to receive full professorship, first department chair. And they follow in the footsteps of other firsts, like Dr. Emilie M. Townes who was named dean of Vanderbilt University Divinity School in 2012. She was one of the first African American female deans of a theological institution, according to reports, and only the second woman at Vanderbilt. In that same year, Barbara Holmes was named president of United Theological Seminary, making her their first Black president. Prior to, she served as vice president of academic affairs and dean at Memphis Theological Seminary from 2005 to 2010.

The Emerging HOPE Ministries Virtuous Queens event is a celebration of strong women in our village whose contributions to the improvement of their communities are depicted in their life work.

We also honor the women of today, our aunts, our best friends, all those women who live each day with a spirit that is uniquely their own, and who continue to write our country’s story every single day.

Moreover, you will hear our beautiful queens share their inspiring stories of triumph and transformation.

We invite you to support this innovative event with your generous contributions. The profits will be used for our holiday outreach ministry program. Likewise, 10% of profits will be earmarked for gifting of our ministry products at no cost.

Submit your generous tax-exempt contributions on the Emerging HOPE CashApp: $EmergeHOPE

Be sure to join us throughout the month of March for this meaningful celebration!

Choice Blessings, Reverend Dr. Pamela Robinson, Emerging HOPE Ministries, Co-pastor
