Meet three black women who didn't accept society's limits on what they could accomplish. Lydia rose from slave to entrepreneur; Katie Marie was educated but lacked resources; Clara Byrd Baker fought for equal rights in the 20th century. The work of these Williamsburg women spanned three centuries, opening doors and providing new opportunities for the next generation to build on. (1 hour)
