NYC's First Female Cab Driver Tells Interesting Story

I came across this very interesting article about New York City's first female cab driver, Ms. Gertrude Jeanette. The actress drove cabs in NYC and even went so far as to go downtown to grab fares, when blacks weren't allowed outside of Harlem to pick up fares. This is an interesting read and you can find out more about Ms. Gertrude Jeanette and why Harlem celebrates this actress (here).
