The Courier Eco-Latino Newspaper recognizes lift her up awardees during annual Women’s Empowerment Luncheon

The threads of inspiration woven through the fabric of society are often tinted with the resilience and strength of Black women who have broken barriers and uplifted communities. Across generations and professions, Black women have carved paths for empowerment, encouraged countless individuals and lifted others up through their profound contributions to the world. 


Each year, during Davis Broadcasting, Inc.’s annual Women’s Empowerment Luncheon, the Courier Eco Latino newspaper recognizes and celebrates 12 black women whose lives and legacies fuel the aspirations of many. This year, they included Attorney LaRae Dixon Moore, Cayley Mccelos, Deloris Washington, Dr. Asante Hilts, Dr. Dionne Rosser-Mims, Eva Smith, Dr. Janet Sherrod, Lativia Rivers, Likitca Ligon, Paula Joy Egins, Ramona Horton and Rosalene Wade Horace.


Each of the extraordinary women, along with countless others not mentioned here, illuminate the path forward for empowerment and success. Their stories are testaments to the drive, hope and spiritual force that have historically underpinned the Black female experience. They are potent reminders that one’s origin does not dictate one’s destination and that encouragement and upliftment have a compounding effect on society as a whole.


In a world still marred by inequalities, the voices and actions of these inspirational Black women echo boldly, encouraging others to rise, advocate for justice and push the boundaries of possibility. There is no doubt that these luminaries have lit a beacon for not only their contemporaries but also for many generations who will continue to draw strength from their legacies for years to come.


This week, we spotlight two of our awardees: Attorney LaRae Dixon Moore and Dr. Asante’ Hilts, CEO of Valley Healthcare System, Inc.
