Praise for Savannah's Black "First Ladies" "The women [profiled here] are valuable role models for women, young and old, to admire and emulate. It should be required reading for any participants in a program working with young women in Savannah and the surrounding area." -Otis S. Johnson, PhD., Mayor, City of Savannah "I found it to be informational, invigorating, and inspiring. It gives me the courage to take the high road in spite of challenges." -Annie P. Wimbish, Ed.D, Superintendent of Schools, Hattiesburg, MS "These compelling stories are inspiring and will serve to encourage women, especially little African-American girls, to embrace their personal power and forge forward." -Bernetta Bryant Anderson, President, Hudson Hill Community The phrase "never been done before" wasn't a roadblock for the women profiled in Savannah's Black First Ladies, Vol. 1. This remarkable collection of short biographies recognizes African-American women in Savannah, Georgia, who were pioneers in their chosen professions. You'll meet educators, police officers, politicians, doctors, and others who went where no one had gone before; in many cases, their professions were closed to women. The trials and tribulations that these women endured to fulfill their calling is a true testimony of their perseverance and strength. They chose not to give up or give in, but to press forward and see their dreams come to fruition-and in so doing, helped open doors for the generations of African-American women that followed.

They range from Tom Molineaux, a slave who won freedom and fame in the ring in the early 1800s; to Joe Gans, the first African American world champion; to the flamboyant Jack Johnson, deemed such a threat to white society that film of his defeat of former champion and “Great White Hope” Jim Jeffries was banned across much of the country. Photographs, period drawings, cartoons, and fight posters enhance the biographies. Round-by-round coverage of select historic fights is included, as is a foreword by Hall-of-Fame boxing announcer Al Bernstein.
