Phoenix Sorority would to congratulate our Financial Advisor and Brooklyn Charter Line Soror as she receives her second Bachelors; BS and MS in Accounting from Saint Francis College. While both degrees were matriculated in 2020, Lynsday’s celebration was postponed due to Covid.

Lyndsay has gone on to accept a position with the federal government and is well on her to becoming a certified CPA....do we hear Dr. Lyndsay Caresse JF in our future?

We can’t wait to see it!

Amanda Gorman
b. 1998

Amanda Gorman was born and raised in Los Angeles. She is the author of two poetry books and is soon to published three new books in the near future. She attended Harvard University, where she graduated cm laude with a degree in sociology. Her art and activism focus on issues of oppression, feminism, race, marginalization, and the African diaspora. In 2014 Gorman was named the first Youth Poet Laureate of Los Angeles, and in 2017 was named the first US National Youth Poet Laureate. She has performed at many prominent venues, including the Obama White House, the Library of Congress, Lincoln Center, and the Superbowl. In early 2021, Amanda grew to worldwide acclaim when she was selected to create and read her poem "The Hill we Climb" at the inauguration of President Joseph Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Gorman is also the founder of a non-profit organization called One Pen One Page, which runs a youth writing and leadership program.

from "We Rise"
By Amanda Gorman

There’s a lot at stake, but making a difference always takes great courage so we choose to encourage a woman who dares to stare fear square in its face. Somewhere, someplace, someone might have used violence to silence a woman’s screams. But now it seems he can’t quiet his own when the truth is shown. Because when one woman stands, she is never alone. Change is achieved when we believe survivors. Because lies can’t survive their spirit and believers when they hear it.

from "Iron"
By Elizabeth Acevedo

Although I too enjoy soft palms on me;
enjoy when he rests on my body with a hard breath;
                                                                                 I have clasped
this man inside me and released him again and again,
listening to him die thousands of little deaths.

What is a good metaphor for a woman who loves in a time like this?

I am no scalpel or high thread count sheet. Not a gavel, or hand-painted teacup.
I am neither           nor romanced by the streetlamp nor candlelight;
my hands are not an iron, but look, they’re hot, look
how I place them           in love           on his skin
and am still able to unwrinkle his spine.
