We hope you had a peaceful, reflective Resurrection Sunday. Oftentimes, the holiday festivities can distract us from the reason we are celebrating. Easter, and every day before and after, is an opportunity for you to look at your life and strengthen your relationship with Christ. 

As 2021 continues, open your heart to Him, your friends, your enemies, your community — and you will be amazed at how He will change you if you let Him. 

Congratulations to Dominisha Black

Dominisha Black has been a stalwart student and will soon be called a graduate at American Baptist College, Class of 2021.

This determined scholar is a Bible and Theology major from Nashville.  While at ABC, she established the Vashti Sisterhood, based on the book of Esther.  The motto is, “Helping ladies to find their way one step at a time," and she encourages young ladies to be ladylike and dress appropriately.  She even secured clothes so the students and community participants could present themselves properly, in all situations.

“I am very committed that ladies are ladies, brilliant and beautiful to fulfill their purpose in life,” said Dominisha.

Dominisha has had her challenges during her academic matriculation. During the Christmas Day 2020 bombing, she and her two sons had to be evacuated from their apartment in downtown Nashville.  Furthermore, she experienced several family members who contracted COVID-19.  In fact, her sons’ great grandfather transitioned because of the disease.  He was the stalwart in her family and her sons. They loved him dearly. The lesson from this experience helped her sons to understand the seriousness of the virus and that taking every precaution is a life-saving action.

After graduation, Dominisha plans to earn her master's degree in Theology and an MBA. She feels prepared and said, “My experience here at ABC has been challenging, yet rewarding, and I would gladly recommend that anyone to attend.  ABC is for peculiar people… those who have high ambitions and high goals, non-traditional or traditional with attitudes that fit any lifestyle to become a leader.”
Dominisha Black participated in the ABC Day in Milwaukee in March 2020. She is pictured (above)  with President Harris, Lonnie Anderson of Milwaukee Public Schools, and ABC staffer Jeremiah Parks. Dominisha was also featured in an ABC promotional video. Watch here.
