Rebecca Lee Crumpler is a woman that history knows little of other than her degree and the little she wrote about herself in the beginning of a book. What makes this woman so important to history, and so important to me, is that Rebecca Lee Crumpler was the first African-American woman to earn an M.D. degree in the United States, and one of the first African Americans to write a book of medical advice.
Mary was born August 5, 1861 in Belleville,IL to Henry and Lavinia Richmond. She was raised by her grandmother and two aunts in Baltimore, MD after her parents died. She grew up around racial problems, suffrage, social, and political beliefs. Because she grew up around those things she started becoming a critical thinker and social activism. Richmond was home schooled because her grandmother and aunts were not familiar with the traditional education system until the age of eleven when she entered public school. She moved to New York with one of her aunts after she graduated from high school at the age of sixteen. Richmond returned to Baltimore and found a job as a bookkeeper. She then applied for an Assistant Treasurer position with the Baltimore
Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune was a educator and activist. Mary McLeod was Born on July 10, 1875, in Mayesville, South Carolina. She was the last of seventeen children, and fortunately was born in freedom. When a school for black children opened the McLeod family had to make a decision. They only had enough money to send one child and McLeod was chosen. While being a exceptional student, her teacher, Emma Jane Wilson, recommended her to Scotia Seminary in North Carolina, a learning institution for Black girls. The McLeod family again did not have enough money to fund McLeod, though a Quaker teacher, Mary Chrissman, supported McLeod for the next fifty years. McLeod graduated from Scotia in 1894 and went on to Dwight Moody’s Institute for Home and
The tables have a long gray, flowing tablecloths to make the scene look fabulous. I notice that each table contains a woven, wooden basket full of thick breadsticks, bentwood chairs. The shape of the chair curves into a heart in the middle, which brings elegance to the room. The windows and the tablecloths have a repetition of vertical lines; I can see curving lines on the chair backs. There is a chandelier in the middle hang from the ceiling and eight lighted candles on it.
Mary Godfrey was born on July 3, 1913 . While her obituary states that she was born in the small southern town, Charlotte Court House, Virginia, in a personal interview, Godfrey’s states she was born in New York, but people would like to think she is from Virginia (Hollingsworth, 1998, p. 200). At some point, Godfrey’s family migrated from Charlotte Court House, Virginia to New York City. Godfrey was one of eight children of Henry B. Godfrey and Louise Read. Her older sister, Cleveland Community Activist and journalist, Stella Godfrey White Bigham was the first African American woman to sit on the Cleveland Transit System board whose work promoted interracial understanding. I have a personal interest in Charlotte Court House, Virginia because
The “Preface to the Reader,” the author characterizes the Indians as “Barbarians” and “Heathens” based on “causless enmity.” On the other hand, the author characterizes Mrs. Rowlandson as “worthy and precious gentlewoman” and the narrative was aimed at “benefit of the afflicted.” This essay is written to discuss Mary Rowlandson’s description of the natives change throughout her narrative.
This November, while we were visiting my grandmother at Cape Cod, my dad and I made a delicious dinner in the style of Redwall. We looked at different recipes and decided on Lemon and Butter Trout, along with some October Ale to drink. We did not have access to trout so we bought fresh Cod. We began by cutting open the fish and sliding slices of butter inside the slot. Once the butter was inside the fish, we cut one of out two lemons in half, squeezed one half onto the fish for lemon juice, and laid the second half neatly on top of the fish in thin slices.
Mary Rowlandson’s A Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration is a story of how Mary Rowlandson and her family experienced hardship, tragedy, and survival from the Native Americans captivity. Mary Rowlandson’s tribulation started when the Native Americans attacked Lancaster in great numbers. Rowlandson narrates, “at length they came and beset our own house, and quickly it was the dolefullest day that ever mine eyes saw” (Rowlandson 487). A picture of destruction was seen everywhere. Rowlandson states “some in our house were fighting for their lives, others wallowing in their blood, the house on fire over our heads, and the bloody Heathen ready to knock us on the head” (487). People including her relatives and neighbors were shot, wounded, and brutally killed. She and her youngest daughter were wounded. They were taken alive and held as captives by the Native Indians. At some point, she felt she has lost everything and everyone except for her life. Her journey went on for days without having to eat or drink. One of the most agonizing times of a mother’s life was seeing her wounded and sick daughter’s death. Rowlandson states, “about two hours in the night, my sweet Babe like a Lambe departed this life” (Rowlandson 491). Rowlandson experienced the bareness of the wilderness. She felt hunger, begged for food, and learned how to eat food that she never find appetizing. Aside form her basic needs of food and even being unsure on many occasions to have a wigwam for
