Black lives matter!

Katherine Bohanen, a blind African-American lady was born on Christmas Day in Kentucky in about 1806 according to her reckoning, but she couldn't be sure.
In 1909 she applied for assistance due to blindness which had occurred in the previous year. We get a little bit of her biography in this clipping.
Happy 209th Birthday Katherine Bohanen!
