DNC Black Caucus Chair Virgie Rollins’ Statement on the Passing of DNC Member Rev. Willie Barrow
The Democratic National Committee mourns the loss of Rev. Willie Taplin Barrow. Not only did she serve as our DNC Black Caucus chaplain and as a mentor to many, she was a civil rights icon in her own right. As an activist, an organizer, an author, and a dedicated committee member, Rev. Barrow inspired and empowered generations of African Americans and women. We will remember and carry forward her words of wisdom and encouragement. The members of this caucus stand on her shoulders.
