Arthuree Tucker was born in Carlisle, SC on May 7, 1926. She was light-skinned and multiracial. She lived through the hard times of segregation and racism. Arthuree is part white, part black, and part Indian. She was also the first woman to hold the position as chairperson on the Trustee Board in the A.M.E. Zion Church. She makes sure that we have a family reunion every two years so that the family can keep in touch. Arthuree is my great-grandma.
