DOCTRESS OF MEDICINE
Rebecca sniffed the tea her aunt had brewed and grimaced. “What is it?”
“Willow bark to bring down Miss Addie’s fever.”
Miss Addie recovered and lived a long and healthy life thanks to Auntie’s wisdom and skill.
Rebecca paid close attention to her aunt’s remedies and the kindness with which she administered them.
Determined to follow in her footsteps, Rebecca became a nurse to ease human suffering. However, it wasn’t enough for the tenacious young woman.
In 1864, the only black face in sea of white, Rebecca Lee Crumpler M.D. received her diploma from the New England Female Medical College.
Chances are this is not a photo of Dr. Crumpler as my resources say there’s no known photograph of her. To learn a little more about the first Female African American physician CLICK HERE.
