Founder of the Tennessee Vocational School for Colored Girls, she was a leader in civic and religious organizations, notably founder of the Nashville City Federation of Colored Women's Clubs (CWC), president of the Negro Women's Reconstruction League, member of the first Committee of Management of the Blue Triangle League of the YWCA, and a leader in the black suffrage movement. She is one of the five women depicted in the Tennessee Suffrage Monument unveiled August 26, 2016, in Centennial Park.
