BHM SPOTLiGHT: Mary Ann Shadd Cary

Mary Ann Shadd Cary
October 9, 1823 – June 5, 1893

What an inspiring woman Mary Ann Shadd Cary is! She is a pioneer in Journalism, and co-founded "The Provincial Freeman" newspaper in 1853. The paper folded, but was revived in 1859. It promoted temperance, moral reform, civil rights & black self-help; while attacking the racial discrimination blacks faced within North America. In 1883, graduated as a lawyer from Howard University School of Law.

If that's not inspiring, I don't know what is. 

Spread Love. Live life. Be Inspired.
