This chapter examines local African American women in Wiregrass County who served as the bulwark of their networks. It explains that these women achieved greater autonomy and provide examples of how women disrupt patriarchal structures. The chapter describes the experience of some women who defied restrictive portrayals of churchgoers and who earned honorific titles. It also discusses the delineation of women-centered programs that reflects the complexity of gender issues within church-related organizations.

Keywords:   African American women, autonomy, patriarchal structures, churchgoers, women-centered programs, gender issue
