So many Womxn through history have made great impacts without being celebrated. At LifeCope we want to celebrate the less known figures that gave us so much!
In today's episode we are talking about the incredible journey of Bessie Blount. Who broke barriers and even when The USA Military VA turned her down. She propelled and found a way. In 1952, Bessie Blount boarded a plane from New York to France to give away her life’s work.
