The women represent the world-famous as well as the little-known and include poet Phillis Wheatley, former Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare Patricia Roberts Harris, educator Nannie Helen Burroughs, the first female editor-in-chief of the Boston University Law Review Clara Burrill Bruce, author Maya Angelou, sculptor Edmonia Lewis, and businesswoman Eartha M.M. White. The exhibition was created and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service; and it was on display at Anacostia Neighborhood Museum from February 8, 1976 - January 2, 1977 and October 21, 1984 - June 30, 1985.
