Ever since she was young, Rebecca wanted to help people feel better, even before people knew much about modern medicine. She would not let anyone stop her from becoming the first African American woman doctor in the United States. She even wrote a book about what she learned so others could learn too. In this book, you'll meet an important African American leader in medicine – Rebecca Lee Crumpler! History is filled with inspiring leaders who made a difference in their communities and in our world. Each book in this illustrated biography series tells the story of an important leader in fields such as science, the arts, government, sports, and more. Texts focus on each leader's early life and greatest accomplishments. Each book includes a time line, questions for discussion, and an extension activity.
