Dr. Washington-Williams' desire is to provide her children the truth and fulfillment of their heritage. She has further fulfilled her goal of publishing a book of her life story. In coming forward with her life story, Dr. Washington-Williams has enriched the lives of many and has helped to change the fabric of American history.
