In Memoriam: Mozella Smith Peterson Galloway, 1951-2012

Mozella Galloway, an information analyst in the Office of Graduate Medical Education at the Emory School of Medicine in Atlanta, died late last month while at work from complications relating to high blood pressure. She was 61 years old.

Galloway, a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago, served on the staff at Emory University since 1995. In addition to her job as an information analyst, Galloway was also the co-founder and president of the National Black Herstory Task Force, a nonprofit cultural and educational organization dedicated to celebrate and chronicle the lives of women of African descent. The group’s mission statement reads in part, “The NBHTF brings together diverse groups for the purpose of ensuring the inclusion of the stories of women of African descent in the recording of world history.”

For the past 16 years the NBHTF has held an annual conference and awards banquet and the first Herstory Literary Festival is scheduled for October 2014.

    I am grieved at the lost of a Black Woman with the insight, skill and a dream for me to direct young women to source for history and information from a Black perspective on OUR WOMEN. I am sorry to have not found her before now but grateful for the legacy she as built. I will be a better teller of our women’s history.
