Do you know Bertha Rogers Looney of the Memphis State Eight?

Bertha Rogers Looney is a history-maker and trailblazer who made my time at the University of Memphis possible, peaceful, and progressive.

Imagine being at a place where no one wants you there. Hateful words are yelled at you daily and you literally fear for your life just because you are trying to get an education.

In my very first episode of S.O. What! Success Stories, I interview one of the sweetest, bravest, and most humble people I know- Bertha Rogers Looney. This interview will make you think, laugh, and maybe cry a little bit, and you will definitely learn.


S.O. What! Success Stories with Summer Owens is a series of casual conversations with overcomers about real life and resilience. Guests share their stories including some of the challenges they faced on their journeys to success. In each conversation, Summer breaks down the S.O. What! Success System and how implementing each of the elements leads to success in the face of even the greatest adversity.
