Elaine is an author, community organizer, and retired educator. Through her books and writing workshops, she illustrates the importance of documenting the Black/African American diaspora though first-hand knowledge. She believes “our stories, our truth should be told in our own words, and preserved in our own homes; they must come from us, not be told to us.” As an active member of her community, she employs a combination of teaching strategies that support intellectual engagement and growth for both younger and older people.
