Pamela Howard-Oglesby and Brenda L. Roberts about this book: Savannah's Black “First Ladies” Volume I- The Past, Present, and Future, is a book with compelling stories of courageous African-American women in Savannah, Georgia's "first city", who shattered barriers to become "pioneers" in their chosen careers. It shows women working hard, dreaming big, and doing great things, at a time when most of them were told that it couldn't be done.
These biographical stories were written to preserve a segment of history that would have been lost. Many of the women highlighted still go about their “life’s work here in Savannah. The current Mayor, Edna Branch Jackson, is one of these remarkable women.
Delve into the lives of these women as they share, some in their "own words", the journey that led them through fire, faith, and perseverance. There is original poetry throughout the book, which is written to be thought-provoking and encouraging. Come with us as we seamlessly connect past and present, and learn about Savannah’s Black “First Ladies”. It is an inspirational book for women everywhere.
