'what Does It Look Like To Be A Black Female Faith Leader?'

By Carla HintonFaith editorchinton@oklahoman.comThe Rev. Bessie Hamilton didn't grow up seeing female preachers in the pulpit. Nevertheless, she pursued her call to the ministry and is now an ordained United Methodist minister serving alongside her husband at an Oklahoma City church. Hamilton's story of breaking barriers in a men's-only profession was similar to other women who recently participated in an online panel discussion. Black Women Voices continued its virtual panel series in November by featuring five local Black female leaders in the Oklahoma City metro-area faith community. The discussion about the women's challenges and experiences was live-streamed on Black Women Voices’ Facebook and Twitter and YouTube pages, and a taped version is currently available. Black Women Voices is an Oklahoma City-based monthly virtual series designed to create a safe space for Black women to share their experiences with the broader community, among other things.
