About Our Guest:
In 2010 she accepted the position of Director of the Mayor’s Office of Re-Entry, City of Indianapolis and expanded the span and effectiveness of that Office exponentially. In December, 2011, Maxine relocated to Savannah, GA and was contracted to served as the first Director of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office Work Release Program during its inaugural year of existence under Promised Land, LLC. Currently she is a Professor of Criminal Justice and Interim Associate Provost of Diversity at Georgia Southern University, Savannah, GA Campus. There she assisted in the founding of Georgia’s first official Student African-American Sisterhood (SAAS) chapter.

Maxine served as the Community Co-chair for the Georgia Prison Reentry Initiative in Savannah and rrecently served as the Project Consultant for the Savannah End Gun Violence project.. With successful offender reintegration as her God-given passion, she presents Trauma Informed Care workshops to professionals in corrections, addictions, and mental health and re-entry focused workshops to laypersons.

Over the years, Dr. Bryant has developed and demonstrated a keen ability to assist organizations in several challenging areas. These include executive coaching, board development, team building, intra-cultural relationships, effective communication, stress management, and program/strategic planning. She takes the time to design each workshop, each technical assistance project, and each speaking engagement to meet the specific needs of the requesting organization.

In addition to her many accomplishments, Dr. Bryant has received several honors and recognition over the years. In 1993 she was selected to be among 25 Indianapolis residents recognized as up and coming community leaders to participate in the Stanley K. Lacy Leadership Series. In 1994 she was recognized as one of America’s 2000 Notable Women. Additionally, Dr. Bryant is listed in the 1998 editions of the Marquis Who’s Who in the Midwest and in the International Who’s Who of Professionals. Dr. Bryant is the 2014 recipient of the Annual MLK Faculty of the Year award at Armstrong-Atlantic University. While these honors are indeed meaningful, Maxine’s greatest honor has been the privilege of parenting her daughter, Mayosha (31) who passed in November, 2011, her son, Jonathan (27), and her step-daughter, Khalilah Shabazz (41).

About The Tougaloo Nine:
At 11 a.m. on March 27, 1961, nine students from the historically black Tougaloo College walked into the all-white Jackson (Miss.) Public Library. Joseph Jackson Jr., their leader, approached the circulation desk.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tougaloo Nine were a group of African-American students at Tougaloo College who participated in civil disobedience by staging sit-ins of segregated public institutions in Mississippi in 1961.


Voices of Wisdom is named so, to keep the voice of Rachel Berry alive through our platform. She created the group Voices of Wisdom because everyone knows something that someone else needs to know, officially know as The VOW Network on Facebook.
