Event description

Description

Join Dr. Shauntae Brown White as she launches her latest book, The First Lady: African American Pastors' Wives in Their Own Voices

“Who is she? What is she like?” “She is a lot more down to earth than I thought.” “She is always trying to run something.” “She should be more active in the church.” There is no lack of curiosity or opinions about the woman who serves as First Lady in Black church. Spoken and unspoken, there are expectations associated with being married to the pastor. Yet, every woman in the role approaches it differently depending on who she is, what her husband expects and the context of the church. Through a collection of 19 personal stories of African American pastors’ wives diverse in age, denomination and standpoint, The First Lady explores how these women define and negotiate their roles as pastors’ wives while balancing the expectations of both their husbands and congregations.

Local First Ladies featured in the book include:

  • Pamela Wooden, Upper Room Church of God in Christ

  • Judith Davis, First Calvary Baptist Church

  • Rhonda Raney, Former First Lady of Macedonia New Life Church

  • Carolyn Traylor, Former First Lady of New Israel Baptist Church
