Title: “Saartje Baartman: A Symbol of Resilience and Empowerment for All”

This essay requires you to write about Saartje Baartman                                            and why she is important for all people to know about.  
We’re not looking for a simple biography here.
You want to emphasize why this woman is important in the lives of all people.  Ask yourself:
What did she overcome? What did she accomplish?  How is she someone for us to consider as we make choices in our own lives? 
You might want to focus on one particular moment in her life, or one particular accomplishment. That will make a much more interesting essay than just listing a series of dates.  Be sure to document your sources by quoting them and including page numbers.
