Pam Chatman "The Oprah of the South"

Pam Chatman "The Oprah of the South"
Often called "The Oprah of the South," Pam Chatman is a larger than life personality in her job. She is a woman who has kicked down doors and broken glass ceilings to do what she loves, and that is empowering women.
She is a Diva by trade and a Boss Lady by definition. When she speaks, she commands attention. The world now knows that, after her debut on the TruTV reality show Breaking Greenville. Raised in the Mississippi Delta city of Shaw, in Bolivar County, Pam never forgets her roots and the things that have driven her to do what she has done so far in her life.
As CEO/Founder of P. Chatman Mentoring, Consultant and Training Organization, Pam fosters teaching women and young girls to love themselves first. She uses past family secrets and school experiences of low self-esteem to empower women so they, too, can heal. Through her powerful and strong voice, she has traveled all over the south speaking to encourage women to never give up on their dreams. Pam is known throughout the south to help women move mountains in their lives that have tried to hold them back from healing and walking into their destiny.
Pam has spoken at places like: Harriett Tubman Residential Women and Children's Center in Chicago, Chicago Girls Behavior Health Facility, CSAT Center (Center for substance abuse treatment women's center) in Mississippi, Catherine Booth Domestic Violence for Women Shelter in Mississippi, National Council for Negro Women Dream workshop in Mississippi, and Diamond in the Rough workshops in several states. She has also worked with schools both in and out of the south over the past seven years to conduct educational conferences and workshops on several topics.
Pam is currently News Director for WABG (ABC) and WNBD (NBC) in Greenville. It was through this position that she "starred" in the Breaking Greenville reality show. This position has also earned her recognition as the first female, African-American news director in the state of Mississippi. And there is even a stretch of highway near Shaw named in her honor. With the recent national exposure on Breaking Greenville, Pam has also appeared on "The Today Show," "The Talk" and "MSNBC Notebook," while also being written about in TV Guide, TV Newscheck, Delta Business Journal, Mahogany Magazine, InStep magazine, Elissa Magazine, AMAZE Magazine, Mississippi Link, and The Tri-State Defender. She has been interviewed on several radio shows. Pam is under management with RKD Management in Hollywood, California, helping celebrities with projects and engagements, and is currently discussing three Hollywood shows.
Beyond the public speaking and inspirational programs, Chatman has shared her life experiences through the written word, too. She has authored a book titled I MADE IT THROUGH THE STORM, which is a testament to women who have weathered personal storms in their lives and come out on top. And soon she will debut a new play titled "LORD SHOW ME HOW TO HEAL MY SCARS," focusing on encouraging women to dig deeper to start their healing process. Pam has started her own cosmetic and spa line called "Boss Lady P Chatman" which consists of a complete cosmetic line (makeup, nail care, skincare), spa line, and a cocktail mix drink line. She is a graduate of Rust College in Holly Springs, MS, and a member of the highly-esteemed Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., The National Council of Negro Women, and the Juvenile Job Corporation Board. Chatman has spent countless hours working with Mississippi women and young people and those efforts have not gone unnoticed.
Pam is now recognized by the U.S. Congress, and earned a place in the Congressional Record for her contributions in her career and her community. Add to that recognition, her placement in the Top 50 Black Women on the Move, Top 50 Women in Business, and the Seed of Africa Award for outstanding African-American Women Making A Difference. She has even spoken at an "Oprah Winfrey Family Reunion. So, in short, Chatman has been an inspiration to many of her peers as well as young people who need guidance and encouragement to move beyond their fears and tears to a place of honor and commitment that they can be proud of.
Pam will be honored on the Red Carpet this October: Equanimity Awards Benefit Gala 2015 along with several celebrities that are giving back to their communities and empowering people along their journey.
