With just a day ’til February, my Facebook feed is already teeming with amazing stories about our history. This one stood out, though. Not only because she was the daughter of an abolitionist and escaped slave or the fourth African-American woman to become a licensed physician in the US, but because she very well may be proof that time travel is real.
It seems at some point in the future, I will build a time machine and go back to the 1800s to become a doctor. Bringing inspiration to little brown girls in one generation apparently isn’t enough for my future self!
