Ebony, Sept, 2003 by Lynn Norment

 

Sheila Crump was born on Jan 25, 1949 in McKeesport, Pa. She moved nearly a dozen times as a child because of her father's job as a neurosurgeon.  Her father was also an accomplished pianist. Her mother, an accountant by trade, also played the piano. Immersed in music as a child, Johnson nurtured her talents to earn a music scholarship at the University of Illinois, where she earned degrees in performance and education. Sheila married Bob Johnson in 1969 and the couple had two children. She taught music at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, organizing students into an orchestra that performed at the invitation of Jordan's Queen Noor, who would later enlist Johnson's aid in establishing a national music conservatory in Jordan.

 

Learn about some of these women!

Bear in mind, the fight is far from over.  Those of us who dare to think for ourselves, often have to fight against those who are still mental slaves. We must remain vigilant and live our lives with integrity!

We also salute those mothers and grandmothers everywhere, and all of the unsung sheroes we never hear about, but without whose courage and fortitude many of today's stars (men and women) would have never risen.  Let us move forward positively.
