Women Celebrating Women
Sarah Jackson, Inspired by Dominique Harris
Outside of being an entrepreneur, committed partner, and homeschool mom of four kiddos, Dominique is a generous, curious member of the Chattanooga community. She frequently educates around issues of race and racism, relationship dynamics, and homeschool curriculum.
Dominique’s conversations about issues of race and racism are especially masterful as she weaves together historical and personal narratives to inform and educate her audience. What’s more, she invites and sincerely engages with feedback and questions around her presentations. In a time where community is fractured and curiosity is scarce, Dominique encourages both by taking a posture of teacher and nurturer. She never seeks to make the lived experience or history of racism more palatable, but she is willing to sit with anyone who has a mind to understand and a willingness to listen. Mia Littlejohn, a friend of Dominique’s, recently said that “our community does not deserve her, but it sure does need her.” I couldn’t think of a better way to say it. She is deeply inspiring to me, and I am grateful to be in community with her.
