Celebrating Black History Month: Kathleen Cleaver 

By Jackie M. We are Celebrating #BlackHistoryMonth Day 8: ❤️Kathleen Cleaver❤️ “To many, Kathleen Cleaver is best known for marriage to Black Panther leader and Soul on Ice author Eldridge Cleaver. Since the couple’s divorce in 1987, however, she has staked out a reputation all her own as a law professor and expert in African-American history. By transforming herself from expatriate revolutionary to respected scholar, Cleaver has brought her unique perspective on critical issues of race, gender and class to a wider audience than was previously possible, while maintaining her commitment to social and economic justice.” -Encyclopedia.com #KathleenCleaver #iconicafro #afroqueen #afro #teamnatural #naturalhair #knowyourhistory #1960s #1970s
