Betty Reid Soskin is a steadfast African-American woman who became a National Park Service Ranger at the ripe age of 85. Now at 98, she has been described as “Bette Davis, Angela Davis, and Yoda all rolled into one.” From her simple wooden stool at Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park, Betty tells an authentic story of what it is to be black and a woman in the United States. The great-granddaughter of a slave, Betty has lived a life filled with painful and often humiliating memories … yet she remains a defiant voice of hope.
