Please meet Mary Jane Seacole (1805-1881) a heroine Jamaican nurse and a strong advocate of Homeopathy. Mary├óÔé¼Ôäós mother was a Homeopath too!

When the Crimean War broke out she traveled to London and applied to go to Crimea to help the wounded soldiers. However because of her race she was not granted an interview.
