Two Boomer Women & The Fine Art of Conversation

TBW Guest Madonna Hanna on Creating a Culture of Civility and Success

November 10, 2021

Growing up in the conservative Boston area, Madonna Hanna was usually only one of a handful of children of colour in her schools. She was bullied and discounted and her experiences both as a child and as an adult gave her both "thick skin" and a lot of resilience.

On numerous occasions, Madonna "took the high road" because to respond or react, would only sink her to the same level as her antagonists.  She led by example both in the east coast fashion business and as a teacher on the west coast.

Most people would find that more than enough to define their life's work but Madonna added athlete, widowhood and acting to her repertoire.

Madonna shares all with deep thought combined with great wit and much humour.
