Mary Jane Patterson is considered to be the first African American woman to receive a B.A. degree when she graduated from Oberlin College in 1862, in the same class as my great-great-Grandmother Mary Jane Bedortha.

This is an old photograph of a young African American lady posing for the camera on a Winter's day. There is nothing to identify this lady or when or where this photograph was taken. My guess is that this was sometime during the late 1920's or early 1930's.
