Badass woman of history

A short video on Henrietta Smith Bowers Duterte, first woman and first black woman to own a funeral home in America. She took over after her husband, helped free slaves in coffins, and worked right up until her death (probably not unusual for the times, but I still say badass). I didn’t know about her, and in case you didn’t either, here ya go :)
