Willa Bruce should be at the top of MB’s List of Laudable Women. Mrs. Bruce bought and held the family property in her name, at a time when few women of any color did so. She supervised construction and managed a highly successful business in the early 1900s even before she as a Black woman had the right to vote.

We should absolutely celebrate this essential advancement of democracy. Thank you!
Doesn't merit a street banner; but then, little does.
