Hi, my name is Mary Ann Shadd. I was born on October 9, 1823 in Wilingtom, Deleware.
I am the eldest of 13 children an my parents were activists. I followed in the same footsteps.
I was an educator, publisher, and abolitionist and I fought for the rights of black people.
I wrote a newspaper called, "The Provincial Freeman". It helped black people and former slaves by encouraging them to immigrate to Canada.
By publishing this newspaper I became the first black female newspaper publisher in Canada as, "Self-reliance is the fine road to independence."
Because of my aspiration to fight for racial rights throughout North America, in Windsor, Canada I created a racially unified school for black refugees and it was open to all races.
