Sullivan, Kathleen

Kathleen (O’Connor) Sullivan was born in 1934 in Trinidad, West Indies, and grew up there until she traveled to Scarsdale, New York in 1950 to work as an au pair for her aunt and uncle. She met Jerry Sullivan in 1951, and the two were married in 1953. From that time on, she viewed herself as a career homemaker, raising six children in a very successful marriage. Kathleen talks extensively about the multicultural and multiracial society that she remembers during her childhood in the island country of Trinidad and Tobago, just north of Venezuela.
