Re: “The Forgotten Fighters

Kudos to STYLE for recognizing 5 forgotten women of Richmond history with their July 27 cover story! Thanks to Melissa Scott Sinclair for bringing these stories to life!

A compelling thing about Lucy Goode Brooks is that SHE secretly learned to read and write, listening to her master's children's lessons. SHE taught her future husband Albert and eldest daughter Margaret Ann these skills.

According to the Brooks Chronicle, written by her descendants, it is believed that Margaret Ann was sold away because she possessed these "dangerous" building blocks of education. Imagine a time in Richmond when it was not only illegal to read and write if you were a slave. It could be punishable by death.

Thanks STYLE for this "tip of the iceberg" gesture in telling Richmond herstory!
