Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Susie Baker King Taylor, former slave, became a Civil War nurse and precursor of the Army Nurses' Corps (though not officially, but by precept) and blazed a trail for the contemporary African American Generals of the US Army Nurses' Corps--Generals Hazel Johnson Brown, Dorian Cardoza, and Clara Adams Ender. Though none of the contemporary Nurse Generals may engage in conversations about their famous nursing ancestor, their work follows in her exemplary pattern which included gaining literacy for herself and teaching other African Americans to read and write; providing aid and comfort to wounded African Americans in the United /states Colored Regiment under the command of General Saxton; and meeting and conversing with American Red Cross Founder Clara Barton at a Beaufort hospital in the summer of 1863. This paper looks at Taylor as a teacher, writer, and nurse who blazed paths for other African Americans of her time and for us today.
