Storyboard Text

  • 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.
