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.
