Dr. Mildred Jefferson: Profile

mildredjefferson.jpg

Dr. Mildred Jefferson was the first African-American woman to attend Harvard Medical School, and did so at age 20, which would have been a remarkable lifetime achievement if she’d done nothing further. But her true mark on our nation and our Commonwealth came in her work for Massachusetts Citizens for Life as one of our founders and as she traveled and spoke throughout the country, converting many thousands to the pro-life cause, including President Ronald Reagan. 

You can learn more about this amazing woman’s life work in the following profile of Dr. Jefferson from the National Right to Life Committee.
