Dr. Atwater has continued to give a prolonged glance at African women from Saartjie Baartman to Queen Latifah who have demonstrated dignity, honor, beauty, and activism despite the odds. Her presentation of their contributions and speeches shows how these women continued to build on the foundation that was laid by our foremothers. Great read!
