Kaye Wolff is a pastor’s wife, a lifelong Lutheran lady, and a longtime leader in the LWML. Born in rural Alabama, Kaye was baptized and spent her early years at Christ Lutheran Church in Rosebud, Ala., the first of many Black Lutheran congregations established by Rosa J. Young’s pioneering missionary efforts. Her family took part in the Great Migration, leaving Alabama and settling in Detroit, Mich., in search of greater educational and economic opportunities.
In this loving and honest conversation, Kaye tells her life story, one marked by segregation, discrimination, and prejudice—but also by love, acceptance, grace, and steadfast faith.
