Livingstone marks Women's History Month

By Laurie D. Willis
Livingstone College News Service
March is Women’s History Month, and Livingstone College is celebrating with its annual Women in History event at 11:30 a.m. today in the Hilliard Room in the Hood Building.
The luncheon is one of Livingstone College’s annual events in support of the United Negro College Fund. The theme for this year’s affair is “Our History is Our Strength.”
Kendra Norman-Bellamy, an award winning, best-selling author, publisher and motivational speaker, is the keynote speaker. Norman-Bellamy was chosen because of her talent, said Deborah Johnson, UNCF Director at Livingstone.
“She is a highly respected motivational speaker, and it’s my understanding that she speaks at numerous events. I’m excited about the event, the individuals who will attend and I’m looking forward to hearing her speak,” Johnson said.
Norman-Bellamy is the founder and president of KNB Publications. She is the author of 18 books and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, or ACFW. She is also the founder of Cruisin’ for Christ, an unusual ministry that celebrates artists who use their talents to glorify God.
Most recently, Norman-Bellamy launched the I Shall Live and Not Die (ISLAND) Movement.
ISLAND is a life-changing motivational ministry with a vision to empower people with God-inspired faith, hope and determination.
Women in History was created at Livingstone College by Katharine Osborne, a writer who loved literary arts and was instrumental in establishing and supporting a women’s symposium at Catawba College.
“Katharine was a very loving and caring individual who was very supportive of Livingstone College as well as the United Negro College Fund and what it stood for,” Johnson said. “She was an educator and believed strongly in the education of young people. She regularly came to our Women in History events and was instrumental in selecting many of our speakers. Katharine is missed, but her legacy lives on, in part, because we continue having this annual program in her memory.”
