This charming lady will be appearing on Cool Chicks from History‘s page on Tumblr soon, but for now, here she is: the first black woman to own property in Boston, and one of the first in the US. Her Wikipedia page is here, if you’d like to look more into her story.

I’m always up to draw awesome ladies from history, so if you like this image and you have suggestions for more excellent ladies that need more love, please send them my way. I’d love to add more awesome historical ladies to this blog.
