Facebook has developed into a way to connect people, spread awareness, and spark conversations throughout the U.S. and the world at large. On Past African American History (Not In the Books), we discovered fascinating post by ED Hutchison about Dr. Mildred Jefferson (1926-2010).

“I am at once a physician, a citizen and a woman, and I am not willing to stand aside and allow this concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged and the planned have the right to live.”
