She is nationally recognized as a leading community organizer for helping bring affordable health care to many. She is also a legislative liaison, advocating for building a multiracial democracy and a caring economy. She draws from her personal experience growing up in Germany and moving to Biloxi, Mississippi, where she became the first Black student to integrate an all-white school. She then moved to the all-Black inner city of Memphis, where she recalls the beauty and the caring of Black people and Black culture that now motivates her to see beauty in all cultures. Sharon was the first Black woman to graduate from Macalester College with degrees in chemistry and biology.
