Jordan's life

Barbara Jordan was the first black women to become an American politician. She believed that you need to know every rule in life, she also believed that the American dream would never die. She knew that her gender and race didn't make up who she was inside.

" Life is too large to hang out a sign: For Men Only"

" Do not call for black power or green power. Call for brain power."

Barbara Jordan has always believed that your brain is more important then your gender and race. She always was quick to stand up to people doubting what she was capable of because of silly things such as, gender and race.
