  • Finding Rebecca: The Forgotten Life of Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler, America's First Black Female Doctor

    We should all know the name Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler, but you probably don't--or at least, you don't yet. Finding Rebecca examines the casual disappearance of America's first Black female doctor from records and memory. But the search for her story and her final resting place, more than one hundred years after her death, turned up a few murky details that author Shani King uses to piece together a picture of the life she led, her hardships, and her many accomplishments. Young readers will discover more about this trailblazing first--and help ensure that she is lost no longer.
