Women's History

“There is no place you or I can go, to think about or not think about... the absences of slaves. There is no suitable memorial, or plaque, or wreath, or wall, or park, or skyscraper lobby. There’s no 300-foot tower, there’s no small bench by the road... and because a place doesn’t exist... the book had to.” - Toni Morrison on her award winning novel, 'Beloved.'

in 1988, Toni Morrison won a Pulitzer Prize for 'Beloved.' The novel, which was set in the years after the Civil War, was inspired by the life of Margaret Garner, an African American woman who escaped enslavement in Kentucky in late 1856.

The novel addressed themes including mother-daughter relationships, the psychological effects of enslavement, manhood, and universal pain. Beloved was adopted as a 1998 movie of the same name starring Oprah Winfrey and directed by Jonathan Demme. Morrison explained her motivation for writing was to memorialize African men, women and children who were forcefully brought to the United States.

Women's History- After seeing televised reports of the violence at Bloody Sunday, Viola Liuzzo packed a bag and told her husband: "It's everybody's fight."
The housewife and mother of five drove alone to Alabama from her home in Detroit to hear Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speak on the steps of the Alabama Capitol. She was ferrying local marchers back to Selma when a car filled with Ku Klux Klan members pulled alongside her car, and shot her in 1965.
Rest in power Viola Liuzzo.

Celebrating Black Women of the West

Mary Fields (circa 1832–1914), also known as Stagecoach Mary and Black Mary, was the first African-American female star-route mail carrier in the United States.

She was not an employee of the United States Post Office Department, which did not hire or employ mail carriers for star routes, but rather awarded star route contracts to persons who proposed the lowest qualified bids. These people, in accordance with the department's application process, posted bonds and sureties to substantiate their ability to finance the route. Once a contract was awarded, the contractor could then drive the route themselves, sublet the route, or hire an experienced driver. Some individuals obtained multiple star route contracts and conducted the operations as a business.

Fields had the star route contract for the delivery of U.S. mail from Cascade, Montana, to Saint Peter's Mission. She drove the route for two four-year contracts, from 1895 to 1899 and from 1899 to 1903.

Author Miantae Metcalf McConnell provided documentation discovered during her research about Mary Fields to the United States Postal Service Archives Historian in 2006. This enabled the USPS to establish Mary Fields' contribution as the first African-American female star route mail carrier in the United States.
