09 Oct Happy Birthday Blog – Mary Ann Shadd Cary
We only learned about Mary Ann and her remarkable legacy recently. During our suffrage celebrations, Mary Ann’s name was mentioned and we knew we needed to investigate. Born on October 9, 1823, Mary Ann was an American-Canadian abolitionist and suffragist. She was also the first Black woman publisher in North America and led quite a life. Learn more about her with this video from the Toronto Star.
Join us again soon for another celebration of our lesser known historical heroes!
