My HERstory pick today is a true trailblazer in history, Dr. Sylvia Traymore Morrison (@sylviatmorrison on Instagram). From the very first day I met her, she has been a blessing to my life with her humble and beautiful spirit. Sylvia is the First Black Female Impressionist. At one point in her career, the amazing Redd Foxx was her manager. She was one of the first black writers for SNL. The list goes on and on of the great things she has definitely paved the way for. I'm grateful to know her and our paths crossed.
