    an abolitionist, believed strongly in integrated education and was a teacher of Black and White students in Ontario. She was the first woman in North America to edit a newspaper. It was called the Provincial Freeman and carried stories about the terrible way Black people were treated and called for an end to slavery. In 1855 Shadd was the first woman to speak at the National Negro Convention.
