I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to the  Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, INC (national) and Omega Rho Zeta, Marana (Arizona) Chapter. On April 3rd, 2021 I had the distinct honor to be recognized as one of the 5 recipients of The Finer Womanhood Community Service Award at this year’s Hats Off To Sisterhood Scholarship Event. I would like to also extend congratulations to my four sister recipients: Ashley La Russa, Nikieia Nicole Johnson, Claire Rosales-Logue and Robin Elaiho. I am blessed to be in such honorable and good company.


About Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc:


“Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded in 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C., as the sister organization of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Five women chose not to embrace the tenets of established black sororities, and chartered Zeta Phi Beta Sorority to encourage the highest standards of scholarship through scientific, literary, cultural and educational programs; promote service projects on college campuses and in the community; foster sisterhood; and exemplify the ideal of Finer Womanhood. A private nonprofit organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority is incorporated in Washington, D.C., and in the State of Illinois.”


Zeta Phi Beta’s Sorority now has a world-wide membership of over 100,000 Black women. As a White woman, to have my social change photography work (Tucson Black Voices, What White People Think) recognized by the Marana chapter, Omega Rho Zeta, these powerful women inspire me and by their honor, give me a call of action to continue in my own efforts to amplify Black voices as well as engage White people to be social change agents. Receiving this recognition is truly one of the greatest honors of my life.

Voices of Race, a portrait series by Kathleen Dreier, is dedicated to amplifying the voices of our BIPOC communities and being a call of action for all people particularly white communities to be social change agents.  Each participant is encouraged to share whatever they like regarding diversity, inclusion, racism, culture, privilege, etc. No one is censored. My intention and wish is that the viewer reflect upon the words of the person in the portrait and is inspired to engage in their own courageous conversations with their friends and family. It is time we each take the time to reflect on our individual and collective histories, heal from the damage done, and create the foundation for equity and compassion for every human being.
