I recently discovered Jo Freeman when I was researching information for my last post. I haven't had enough time to linger at her website, not yet. I haven't had a chance to go to Barnes & Noble to buy one of her books. I know that she is an excellent story teller. How do I know this? Because I've read some her writing about Shirley Chisholm and about the Democratic National Conventions.

It only takes seconds to grasp Good. It only takes a minute to grab Great. And then all of a sudden an hour flies past Fantastic.

I love her style of writing! I love her clarity and I love her gifted ability to write words that sketch images of what the scene might look like. I love that her writing prompted me to wonder what people must've really felt like at that moment. I just added Jo Freeman to my list of "Sisters." I cannot wait to read more history through her eyes and get lost somewhere between the inspiring and the awe struck.

My new Sister Hero...Jo Freeman!
