Hi everyone,

I, the Fourth Generation Shaw family member, was born in 1932, and I married Bennie Mamaduke Barnes in 1963, a mathematics school teacher, who became a Supervisor Personnel Management Specialist for the United States Defense Department.

You know me, but I will add a little more information. After arriving in the north, first, I followed a school life, first as valedictorian of my T.S. Cooper High School class in Sunbury, North Carolina. Afterward, I graduated college from Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, earned a master’s degree at Atlanta University, Georgia, 1955, and graduated the University of Virginia, (UVA) Charlottesville, with a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology and specialty in the family June 6, 1971. On that day, I because the first African American to graduate from UVA’s department of anthropology, their first African American woman to earn a Ph.D., and the second African American to earn Ph.D. at UVA.

I have a work history. Aside from domestic work and other tasks, I taught eleventh and twelfth grade honor students at Huntington High School in Newport News, Virginia. Subsequently, I taught anthropology and sociology three years at Hampton Institute, Virginia, and, twenty-six years, I was Eminent Anthropology Professor in the sociology department at Norfolk State University, Norfolk, Virginia and retired from the university as Professor of Anthropology Emerita in 1997.

Because of my work heritage and experience, I am happy, when I stay, productively, busy and writing blogs to you is one of my great experiences.
