By Barbara Perkins, Sisters At The Well, Inc. Founder and President
Brenda Marsh-Mitchell's one woman's journey to repair the bridge of love and empowerment for black women, their families and community, will never be forgotten. She was the epitome of a modern day renaissance woman. She was an architect for positive change here in Los Angeles and beyond.
There was no battle that Brenda was not ready to fight on behalf of those unable to fight for themselves. She approached every plight that they may find themselves in fearlessly, with determination and passion. She could gather a coalition which she would call together in record time.
Brenda would hear the issue, make a quick decision to take action then take out her black book and bring the right people together to design the right solution. She was a no nonsense leader, who spoke softly and packed a mighty punch when needed. Brenda made things happen.
