Was the youngest daughter of Lillie Marie Barnes-Conyer. Born September 7, 1946 in Jonesboro, LA. Doretha, at 16 fulfilled her destiny by becoming a young freedom fighter in the segregated south. With a deep sense of pride, Doretha stepped into the front lines of the fight for racial equality in the small town of Pine Bluff, AR. Risking life and limb, she participated along with many of her fellow freedom fighters, in a number of sit-ins and protest for civil rights. Doretha believed not only in what was right but the power of education. Often quoted as saying "you can't make it in this world without an education," Doretha ensured that every generation after hers understood this proclamation. Whether it was her own children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, or simply friends, she made it her personal mission to ensure that they understood this need and the power that it held.
