Rebecca Cole (1846-1922) & Rebecca Lee Crumpler (1831-1895): As we have seen, God empowered many trailblazing women in medicine to overcome insurmountable opposition as a result of their sex. Yet what about women who also had to overcome racial bias? Today we will be looking at two remarkable ladies–a Quaker and a Baptist–who became the first African American woman doctors in spite of enormous antagonism and prejudice. Their grace, patience, and wisdom in the midst of hostility–not to mention their achievements–powerfully attest to the fact that no matter what we face, we can be MORE than conquerors through Him who loves us!
