Trailblazers Come in Many Colors
A MN NOW Initiative
Updated on August 26, 2020
A trailblazer is a pioneer or someone who is considered a first in their area of expertise. As leaders, they point the way, take the risks, and change the environment. They have a vision for a different future, a faith that turns their dreams into reality, and a determination that cuts through barriers and obstacles. They aren’t just men!
In both American and Minnesota history, there have been many women of color trailblazers. If you can’t think of many or any, we have numerous great stories for you.
Suffrage Stories – In MN & Beyond
Since 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, we thought the Suffrage stories should be the first we’d share.
Important stories of Minnesota women of color are woven throughout our state’s history. At MN NOW, we will gradually add new sections with more inspiring stories. Some will be MN women of note, but there are many other American women’s inspirational stories we just can’t leave out.
If you have suggestions for other additions to the Trailblazers’ content or comments, you may send them to MNValleyNOW.email@example.com.
