The “Little Warrior” Reverend Willie Barrow Died Yesterday

Reverend Willie Barrow

Reverend Willie Taplin Barrow, also known as “The Little Warrior”, died on Thursday, March 12, 2015 at age 90.

She was civil rights leader, a warrior for justice and godmother to many. Although she was short in stature, she was strong in power, presence and personality.

Dr. Barrow has a laundry list of accolades and contributions but I won’t go into those.

However, I will say that she was fighter for civil rights, women rights and individual rights. And she will be missed.
