By now you know that we've lost a dear friend: Sister Theresa Freeman-Timmons - who had served as the President of the New York Chapter of the National Action Network.
She was a wonderful spirit, a stalwart in the community, who never tired of helping Black people with the challenges of racism. If it needed to be done, said, or thought of, Theresa was there. She has left a major hole in the fabric of all our lives.
Below is the information for the upcoming viewing and funeral/homegoing services.
My love and condolences to her family, friends, Rev. Al Sharpton and NAN, and New Yorkers everywhere. Theresa's joined the ancestor/angels. It's going to take ten people to replace her. Peace and Love Be Unto Her.
Stay Blessed &

My profound condolences to Reverend Al Sharpton and the members of NAN, her family, friends, myself - I will miss her - and New Yorkers.I am so hurt to have learned of this. Theresa has been a tireless worker for Black people for eons. She's been a stalwart member of NAN, and has dedicated her life to making the lives of Black people every where better.
Theresa was a devoted, tireless worker, who left a legacy of accomplishments for which we all are the beneficiaries. She was focused and forceful when it came to fulfilling her mission - the rights of Black Americans.
This sister has been called home to the ancestors, leaving a mighty gaping hole to fill, and a path to follow.STAY BLESSED &
