Description:

The paper explores Shadd's prominent role as the first Black woman in North America to edit and publish a newspaper. Moreover, the paper looks at how Shadd vehemently rejected the strictures imposed upon her by virtue of being female and black and how she self-consciously carved out for herself a very public position on a wide array of issues.

Finally, the paper discusses her many accomplishments as a publisher and as an educator and concludes that she lives on because she was a prototype for a new kind of black woman who would not tolerate second-class citizenship.
