Here is the entry for the sole female in the group, Whoopi Goldberg:
“Born Caryn Elaine Johnson in 1955, Whoopi Goldberg rose to fame in the acting world, becoming the second black woman to win an Academy Award for her role in the 1975 blaxploitation film, Blackface Jones and the Temple of Jive. After beating pinkytoe cancer in 1963, Goldberg established Brows(e) for a Cure, an organization that encourages people to donate their eyebrows to make wigs for others battling the disease. She continues to donate to this day.”
Any women’s historians out there want to join me in coming up with similar entries for WHM? Historiann, are you game? Or has this been done already and I missed it?
