Bebe moved to Delaware, her adopted home, in 1960 after having graduated from Morgan State (College) University and worked in the area of human and social services for the State of Delaware. She later served as the trainer for new social services employees before being recruited by the federal government to provide training in the region for Social Security programs in the states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. At the request of Governor Pierre S. du Pont, Bebe became the corporate/community relations liaison for the then Governor's pioneer Jobs for Delaware Graduates program, moving later to the Washington, D.C. area to provide training for the Jobs for Americas' Graduates program.
Bebe Coker, after retirement, provided diversity training for employees of the Defense Logistics Agency, Region 3.
She is the proud mother of U.S. Navy Capt. Laurie Coker Reid, RN, Uniform Health Services/CDC, Dr. Joan F. Coker, Head and Neck Surgeon, Wilmington, DE; and, Julie Coker, Sr. Vice President, Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau, Convention Division. Her passion is for excellence in learning for all children in general and African American children in particular. Bebe Coker holds the distinction of having been the first Delaware playwright to produce and perform an original musical (Mo' Tea Miss Anne?) at the Du Pont Playhouse. She is also among the first recipients of the Jefferson Award for Public Service. Some of her volunteer efforts are with the Christina Cultural Arts Center, the Startup Africa projects (digging fresh water wells in Kenya, et al), the Board of the new Moyer Academy, the Advisory Council of the Heritage Center for the Delaware Historical Society, the Black Heritage Educational/Theater Group (Director), August Quarterly 2013 Anniversary Committee, the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League, the Strong Neighborhoods Project at the United Way, and the Muriel Gilman Women of Action group, to name a few.

"We know times are tough with gas prices and everything ... and people can't even afford to go to the beach this summer," said playwright and activist Bebe Coker, co-director of the Black Heritage Educational Theater Group."That's why we came up with this."
She and co-director Judi Roane pulled together an outdoor concert dubbed the Neighborhood Fun Fest, set to start at 6 p.m. at Peoples Settlement Association, 408 E. Eighth St., Wilmington.
The evening of jazz and poetry is being presented in cooperation with nonprofit Peoples Settlement as "our summer gift to the neighborhood," Coker said.
Everyone is invited to bring a lawn chair, relax and enjoy local talent, she said, "and if it rains, we'll take it inside."
Jazz and blues will set the mood with Dennis Fortune & Co. featuring vocalist Wendi Grantham and The Twin Poets, Al Mills and Nnamdi Chukwuocha scheduled to perform, she said.
Presenting the evening of entertainment dovetails with the theater group's aims, Coker added.The nonprofit group -- also developing a new production as a prelude to next month's August Quarterly -- gives dramatic performances for schools, churches, groups and the public to raise awareness of the historic and modern contributions of blacks to the state and nation.
The Wilmington-based theater group partnered with Peoples Settlement Association Executive Director Keith Lake on the summer fest because of the center's longtime community service, Coker said.
