Susie King Taylor Inducted Into The
Georgia Women of Achievement
More than a century after her heroic acts, Liberty County legend Susie Baker King Taylor was inducted into the Georgia Women of Achievement 2018 Hall of Fame. The 27th annual event was held at Wesleyan College in Macon to honor the 2018 inductees.
Taylor was nominated for the award by Hermina Glass-Hill, executive director of the Susie King Taylor Women’s Institute and Ecology Center, after she learned of the program from Liberty County Chairman Donald Lovette.
“Susie King Taylor’s life just exemplifies what is possible in all of us because her story is so undertold given that she contributed so much of her life to freedom, education and humanity,” Glass-Hill said. “To study Susie King Taylor’s life and the sense of justice that she was fighting for and the sense of evil that she was resisting by fleeing slavery is to know that the world needs to know about her.”
