If this thread was about bm their accomplishments would go on forever, don't feel threatened by excellent bw. I know it's hard for some of these ppl to look on and be inspired but try atleast. What we ultimately need is to come together.

Always insisting on presenting the truth as she sees it, she has maintained a prominent place as a strong voice of the Black community. Her focus is on the individual, specifically, on the power one has to make a difference in oneself, and thus, in the lives of others.

Bessie Blount Griffin

She was born on November 24, 1914 in Hickory, Virginia. She was a multi-talentaed physical therapist, inventor, and a forensic scientist. She worked with the injured soldiers during World War II; which inspired her to devise a feeding apparatus to help the amputees to feed themselves. In 1951, she invented an electronic feeding device, which delivered food through the feeding tube, and was controlled by biting down on the tube.

Her invention was rejected by the American Veterans Administration, and hence, she sold her idea to France. She designed the disposable cardboard emesis basin, which was developed with Theodore Edison, son of famous inventor Thomas Edison. Later, she sold the invention to Belgium.

Thank you. All I am saying is that admiring the likes of Condi Rice is a dead end street whether she is male or female. Africa has always been ahead of the world in terms of women status. But most of us do not know it. We need to know it. For example, Queen Nzinga of Congo/Angola was the first Christian ruler to abolish the slave trade. She knew that slavery was contrary to the Biblical Message. Folks think the British did it. But it was sister. And she was a queen, and a Christian. Do not limit yourself to the USA.
