Argosy University, San Francisco Bay Area Instructor, Booker T. Washington's Great Granddaughter, Featured on WVON-AM

Sarah Washington Neal Rush, adjunct psychology professor at Argosy University, San Francisco Bay Area, was featured on WVON-AM’s “The Midday Show” with veteran journalist and host Ms. Perri Small. Rush discussed the topic of Black Family Month.

Rush is the great-granddaughter of Booker T. Washington, a former slave, famous educator, and founder of Tuskegee University. A noted speaker, Rush is known to parallel her own personal stories of overcoming odds with stories of how her great-grandfather was able to rise above slavery.

On the radio interview, Rush asked listeners to celebrate Black families and rededicate themselves to their families and celebrate their connection, heritage and commitment to one another. She says families should look to implement progressive and positive changes, connect through old traditions, create new ones, and build through participating in activities that can be continued throughout the year.

Rush is also an author, and in her book Rising Up on the Blood, she lists seven tools that families can use to empower and embrace the past and the future including:

¨Strive for excellence

¨Build strong character
¨Rise above difficult circumstances
¨Turn obstacles into opportunities
¨Thrive in interpersonal relationships
¨Achieve your own extraordinary legacy
