23 Nov Happy Birthday Blog – Mary Seacole
One of the things we love about our HBD Ladies blog is sharing awesome stories of unknown women. Mary Seacole was born on this day in 1805 in Kingston, Jamaica. She went on to become a heroic nurse during the Crimean War. Sadly, as a poor Black woman, she was excluded from the history books. The honor instead went to rich, influential nurse Florence Nightingale. Thankfully, our friends at Horrible Histories are here to set the record straight.
Join us in celebrating Mary today! And we’ll see you next time!
