What a special young woman! Susie King Taylor: first African American army nurse; the only African American woman to publish a memoir of her wartime experiences; also the first African American to teach openly in a school for former slaves in Georgia.
What looks like Crazy on an Ordinary Day - first of all, Pearl Cleage is an amazing author - and so is this book. Another "Oprah approved" book. Worth reading a second time (excuse me while I add this to my nook wishlist lol)
