She spent her formative years in Muskogee and was cousin to Carter G. Woodson (founder of Black History Month). In 1943, she became Director of the San Antonio YMCA-US0 for Black Military (a group formed to help morale for African-American service members and their families). During that time she met her husband Rev. Claude W. Black, Jr. They were married Feb. 7, 1945. In the 1950s and '60s, Mrs. Black served alongside her husband in the civil rights activism. Mrs. Black founded several senior citizen daycare centers and earned recognition from the nation's capital. She was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, a noted African-American women's sorority. Over the years she taught Communications, Drama, Speech, Radio and Physical Education at Langston University in Oklahoma, and St. Phillips College in San Antonio. Mrs. Black died peacefully in her sleep two weeks short of her 59th wedding anniversary.
