Mary Ann Shadd Cary, Delaware's Forgotten Daughter @ Milton Public Library @ Milton Public Library | Milton | Delaware | United States

Mary Ann Shad Cary (1823-1893) was one of the most accomplished and celebrated women in black history.  She was born in Wilmington, yet few Delaware residents have ever heard of her.  Shad Cary seems more a woman of our times than of her own.  Teacher, journalist, editor, feminist, lawyer, wife and mother…it is easy to imagine her as a modern-day superwoman, preaching and practicing a life committed to racial and gender equality.  It is harder to imagine a woman, especially a woman of color, leading a life so rich with accomplishments 150 years ago.
