Celebrating the Life and Travels of Barbara Hillary: The First Black Woman To Visit the North and South Poles
Barbara Hillary had many labels: daughter; Harlemite; African-American; Black woman; nurse; magazine founder; Editor-in-Chief; activist; and traveler, no, better yet, explorer. But most importantly, she was a trailblazer. Not only in travel, but in life. Because despite being born in a place and time that had already made so many decisions and placed limitations on her, decided to live life her own way. No matter how strange those decisions may have seemed to some.
