Whitlock's Compositions

Charlene Hampton Holloway

Whitlock’s Compositions tells the true tale of three African American women who did not give up on their chosen careers and obtained their education during the Great Depression through the 1960’s Civil Rights era.  As well as documenting well-known African American athletes in the 1960’s, this inspiring story speaks aloud to the saga African American families face throughout the country.  The relevancy of this story for today’s world post-COVID-19 is powerful as author, Charlene Hampton Holloway, RN recounts hoe her mother, C. Thelma Whitlock, was nursed back to health as a one-year-old baby by her mother, Parthenia Whitlock, during the 1918 Spanish Influenza pandemic.
