Born Barbara Louise Standley on June 22, 1942 in Cleveland, Ohio and was raised in the Protestant Episcopal Church. After graduating from high school with both class honors and Ohio State honors, I graduated from Mt. Holyoke College with a B.A. in Religious Studies.

My path was set on civil rights and social justice issues by serving on the college religious activities board as the student director of the college chapel, as a result of which I had the privilege of meeting and eating lunch with Dr. Martin Luther King.

In 1965, I received my MA in English at Case Western Reserve University and taught several members of my own high school class when I became a member of the opening year faculty at Cleveland State University. In the winter of 1966, I was received into the Roman Catholic Church. While I was a doctoral candidate in English at Boston University, I was active in both demonstrations against the Vietnam War and supporting civil rights.
