Ms. Barbara Jordan was one of the powerful ladies who inspired many ladies like me who have been trying to make out something for living and were dominated by most of the gents who were on the top positions in every field those days. She was the once because of whom I was dreaming of being a lawyer but couldn’t make it through because of lack in studies :D, but no worries, currently working as coupon expert and helping mommys to save some money for them, I also like shopping with coupons specially , because I am an artist too and if you get a thing for less from which you can make big then there is nothing more good than that.
Ms Jessica Lawyer-You are a success. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for the record, I love coupons!
She was the first African American elected to the Texas Senate after Reconstruction and the first southern black female elected to the United States House of Representatives.
She also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, among numerous other honors.
