She was born in Memphis, Tennessee on September 9, 191 to Mary Taylor Lee and Lawrence Johnson Lee. Browne’s mother died when she was only two, so she was raised by her father, a railway postal clerk, and her stepmother, Lottie Lee, who was a school teacher.

Browne 's father, who completed two years of college and had a civil service job, was more privileged than other blacks at the time.

Angela Davis is to be considered one of the most important political activists in African American culture. Davis was born on January 26th, 1944 in the deep south, more specifically, Birmingham, Alabama. Due to this, Davis was very susceptible to racial prejudice in her early years.

Dear Dr. Cathleen Moore and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, I would like to be considered for your Graduate Teaching Assistant position that was posted on 10/31/2017. I believe that I would be a great fit for this position due to my experiences as a teacher and my academic background in psychology. One reason I would be a great fit for this position is because I once held what seems to be a nearly identical position in college. At Southern Illinois University (SIU), I served as an undergraduate Teaching Assistant for Introduction to Psychology under the tutelage of Dr. Meera Komarraju. In this position, I led a discussion section for a similar number of students that were mostly at the freshmen and sophomore level.
Wright married David D. Jones, an attorney, and the couple had two daughters, Jane Wright Jones and Alison Jones. Also during her career, Cooke also collaborated with cell biologist and physiologist Jewel Plummer Cobb, another noted African American woman scientist.

In 1964, she was one of the seven founders of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and in 1971, she was the first woman elected president of the New York Cancer Society. She also was appointed associated dean and head of the Cancer Chemotherapy Department at New York Medical College in 1967, apparently, the highest ranked African American physician at a prominent medical college at the time, and certainly the highest ranked African American woman physician.
