The Honorable Judge Glenda Hatchett inspires, challenges and moves to tears

Judge, Activist, Advocate, Television Star, Author of the bestselling book “Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say” (Harper Collins) was the keynote speaker at the “Pretty In Pinstripes” power luncheon which honored women in business and government.

Artisan Photographics based in Florida was honored to be selected as the photographer for this annual event. Judge Hatchett gave all those in attendance more than simply food for thought, she reminded us to call forth those things that make us great.

She said to those in attendance that sometimes you don’t choose your passion, it chooses you. She told the story of finally arriving at a very powerful post at Delta Airlines the highest ranking African American Woman litigating cases for the company in federal court when she was “called” for her current mission and how she prayed about this calling.

Artisan Photographics was honored to capture not only the range of emotions that Judge Hatchett expressed in the still images we have of her, but we were moved and reminded to focus on our goals as individuals and as a company. Part of her speech covered an area we all particularly enjoyed “hurdles and haters” reminding once again that in life if you have dreams and visions you will not succeed without facing these two prominent issues. There will be hurdles; there will be those who hate you for the passion you bring to the table. She assigned us all homework, not as simple as it seems “what is it that you have wanted to do, but haven’t?”

Her statement at the closing of so many of her cases “I expect great things from you” is a reminder to demand from ourselves that which is great and wonderful. For as we know, greatness slumbers within each and every one of us.
