She is an African American RN who has been through nursing starting with segregation. I sat with her at NYU just last week and heard how she was one of the voices for black nurses in the very beginning of time. She was the first black nurse to be elected into a black nursing association. She was outspoken and did a lot for African American nursing today as well as nursing today. She is VERY interesting and although isn't practicing, a very good role model for all nurses. Check out her biography here:
