Susie King Taylor Institute and Ecology Center: Hermina Glass-Hill | Voices of a Healthy Ocean
Don't miss the final stop in the series!
Jenna and Sarah could not think of a better person to wrap up their Voices of a Healthy Ocean tour with than the one and only Hermina Glass-Hill. The two joined Hermina for a day in Hinesville, Georgia to visit places where they could walk in Susie King Taylor's footsteps and learn more about her remarkable life. Hermina founded the Susie King Taylor Women’s Institute and Ecology Center in 2016 to honor this Gullah Geechee freedom seeker and to provide educational programming on the influence of coastal ecology in the lives of enslaved and free women. In 2019, she received the Georgia Governor’s Award for Arts and Humanities for her service in preserving African American history and culture. Most recently she worked as the climate justice advocate at Georgia Interfaith Power and Light, engaging communities and educating local, state, and federal policymakers on the impact of climate change on frontline coastal communities.
