February is Black History Month, and to celebrate, I'm writing a series of blogposts spotlighting 10 African-American heroines whose triumphs and legacies are less widely recognized today. First up, is a hard drinkin’, gun totin,’ nun lovin’ (wait, what?) bad-ass chick who made history after becoming the first African-American woman mail coach driver employed by the U.S. government! Check-out her profile and those for 9 other history-making bitches throughout February. Happy Black History Month!
