Dr. Margarett Bachus Wilson is a proud Alcornite (‘72), medical consultant, author, entrepreneur, designer, inventor, quilter, and philanthropist. She is the Co-Founder (with her husband, Bobby, Alcorn ‘72), Business Manager, and Medical Consultant for the Metro Atlanta Urban Farm in College Park, GA; Executive Director of the Bobby V. Foundation; and Business Manager for Bobby V. Touring, Veltree Music Group, Blu Kolla Dreams. In addition, Dr. Wilson is a wine master and fruit/vegetable preserver.
Born in Hernando, MS, as a child she suffered poverty and endured working in the excruciatingly hot Mississippi cotton fields. After graduating from high school, she entered Alcorn A&M College on a full academic scholarship. While at Alcorn, she was one of the original Golden Girls and was initiated into Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. In 1972, she graduated from Alcorn with a BS in Biology and then earned her MD from the University of Minnesota. She completed her residency training at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Later, she received a Master of Public Health from Emory University School of Public Health in Atlanta, GA, while completing a Preventive Medicine/Public Health Residency at Atlanta’s Morehouse School of Medicine.
Dr. Wilson refused to let obstacles stop her aspirations. She persisted and ultimately fulfilled her near impossible dream to become a physician during a time when gender and racial bias discouraged women from earning a medical degree in the United States. Her medical appointments have included: Staff Physician - Jackson Hinds Comprehensive Health Center (Jackson, MS); consultant with the Georgia Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Disability Adjudication Program; Medical Director, Fulton County Correctional Facility; Emergency Care Physician, Crawford Long Hospital, Hughes Spalding Hospital (Atlanta); Occupational Medicine Practice, Atlanta Medical Center; Assistant Professor, Clinical, Emory University
School of Medicine; and Employee Health Physician for the Grady Hospital Health System.
She also invented the Snazzy Napper sleep shield and has personally appeared on CNN and numerous radio talk shows.
Dr. Wilson is active with the Metro Atlanta Alcorn Alumni Chapter. She is also a life member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and active with the Atlanta Alumnae Chapter. She resides in Atlanta with her husband, and they have two children, Arletha Michelle and Bobby V.
In January 2021 Rev. Raphael G. Warnock. Ph.D. became the State of Georgia's first Black Senator and the first Black Democrat to represent a southern state in the U.S. Senate. He is also the Senior Pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Under Rev. Warnock’s leadership, more than 5,000 new members have joined Ebenezer, enhancing the Church’s legacy of social activism with both spiritual and numerical growth. He sees the whole community as his parish, and accordingly, he has defended voting rights in his own State of Georgia and in the State of Louisiana.
Rev. Warnock has also taken on the contradictions in our criminal justice system through his preaching and fierce public advocacy. He, along with many others, stood up for Troy Davis, Trayvon Martin, and Genarlow Wilson. Rev. Warnock’s bold and visionary leadership has been further demonstrated through his public policy work with The National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS and his ongoing efforts to provide tuition support for young people pursuing post-secondary education.
In 1991, he graduated cum laude from Morehouse College, with a B.A. degree in psychology. He also holds a Master of Divinity, a Master of Philosophy, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Union Theological Seminary, New York City. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc., and a Lifetime Member of the NAACP. Rev. Warnock is a Senior Fellow at Auburn Theological Seminary, an Aspen Institute Ascend Fellow, and formerly served as Chairman of the Board of the New Georgia Project, an organization that has registered 400,000 new voters in the State of Georgia.
Among other honors, Rev. Warnock has been recognized as one of “Atlanta’s 55 Most Powerful” by Atlanta magazine and one of the “20 Top African American Church Leaders” by TheRoot.com. His work has been featured on CNN, the CBS Evening News, the Huffington Post, and in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, which hailed him “a leader among Atlanta – and national – clergy, a fitting heir to the mantle once worn by The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” At President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama’s request, Rev. Warnock delivered the closing prayer at the 2013 Inaugural Prayer Service and delivered the sermon for the Annual White House Prayer breakfast in March 2016. His first book is entitled, The Divided Mind of the Black Church; Theology, Piety & Public Witness (NYU Press, 2014)
