On this first day of #WomensHistoryMonth I highlight Soror Barbara Jordan. She was the first African American to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention. She also introduced the Presidential Records Act that eventually became a law in 1978.
On this second day of #WomensHistoryMonth I highlight Soror Wilma Rudolph. Despite being told as a child she would never walk again, she became the first American woman to win three gold medals in track and field during the 1960 Summer Olympics.
On this third day of #WomensHistoryMonth I highlight Soror Dr. Jocelyn Elders. She was the first African American Surgeon General. While in that position she advocated for sexual health and reproductive rights — something which is still taboo to this day.
