Twice as hard : the stories of Black women who fought to become physicians, from the Civil War to the 21st Century

Brown, Jasmine (author.). Rush, Wanda, (narrator.).

Summary: Jasmine Brown offers the stories of nine pioneering Black women physicians, beginning in 1860, when a Black woman first entered medical school. Included are Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler, who graduated from medical school only 14 months after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed and provided care for the newly freed slaves who had been neglected and exploited by the medical system. Dr. Edith Irby Jones, the first African American to attend a previously white-only medical school in the Jim Crow South. Still, Dr. Irby Jones persisted and graduated, going on to inspire other black women to pursue medicine. Dr. Joycelyn Elders, who, after meeting Dr. Irby Jones, changed her career ambitions from becoming a Dillard's sales clerk to becoming a doctor. In 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed her the US surgeon general, making her the first African American and second woman to hold this position.
