This week's ZV Beauty of the Week is Harriet Ann Jacobs.
Harriet was born February 11, 1813. She was born into a tumultuous time of great strife and struggle for people of her gender and race. She overcame so many of the odds stacked up against her to become an outspoken abolitionist lecturer and reformer. Harriet later became a well known author on the subject under her pseudonym, Linda Brent.
