Jamaican Women of Florida pay tribute to Winnie Mandela

SOUTH FLORIDA – Camille Edwards, President of Jamaican Women of Florida and the Executive Board would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Winnie Mandela who passed away April 2, 2018 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

To Winnie Mandela, we say take your well-earned rest as you transitioned from among us but never from us.

We take solace in knowing she now sits among our “sheros” like Nanny of the Maroons, Mary Seacole the famous Jamaican-born British nurse, Honorable Louise Bennett-Coverley and many others whose lives have empowered and inspired us.
