Barbara Haskins

BARBARA HASKINS was born in Hot Springs, VA and is the eldest daughter of Levi and Julia Haskins. She has been a resident of Queens, NY for over 40 years; where she has had a lasting commitment to uplift and preserve African-American self esteem.

Ms. Haskins is a poet, public speaker and educator who has professionally interacted with many African-American luminaries; including Media Host Bob Law, Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu, the Rev. Al Sharpton among others.

Ms. Haskins began writing poetry approximately 15 years ago as a hobby to privately express her feelings about prevalent social issues; especially in regard to African-American children. One of her foundational beliefs is that if a child is given a chance to develop and learn their culture and self-worth, that child will succeed.
