Dr. Jacqueline King’s Bio:

Dr. Jacqueline King started Black Women Empowered (BWE) in November of 2011. While watching BET’s Black Girls Rock and the excitement from the women on Facebook, God spoke to her and said “What happens when the excitement ends?” It was this question that caused Black Women Empowered to be born.
BWE started out with just over 200 women on Facebook and ultimately reached over one million fans on a daily basis. BWE is now using other social media platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, Google Plus, Periscope, and Pinterest to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By the grace of God, several other social media pages were launched including, Black Women Empowered New Jersey/New York, Black Women Empowered Atlanta, Black Girls Empowered, Black Men Empowered, BWE Live Broadcasts, BWE Encouragement, and BWE Obama Family Fan Page.

Dr. King spent almost twenty six years working in various management positions within the largest Electric and Gas utility in New Jersey.  She left New Jersey in 2004 and relocated to Greensboro, NC. Having served on several boards in New Jersey, She served for several years on the Greensboro Human Relations Commission in Greensboro as the Vice Chair, the Greensboro Police Community Review Board as the Vice Chair, NC, the Greensboro Chief of Police Faith Based Council, the Child Placement Review Board of Mercer County, NJ, the College of New Jersey Non Traditional Jobs for Women,  the Middlesex County Gender and Equity Board, the Ewing Township General Assistance Board, and the Mayor of Newark’s Diversity Council, just to name a few. She is the mother of two amazing children – Eric and Ashley with three beautiful Grandchildren: Daija, Christopher, and Corbin. Her favorite quote is “The truth is not always popular, but it is always correct.” Her  favorite scripture is Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
