Mabel Keaton Stauper was a pioneer for racial equality in the nursing profession pre-World Wars. Stauper’s resilience led to the eventual desegregation of the US military, allowing black nurses to finally care for American soldiers, patients they were banned from treating. Stauper also founded a clinic for African American patients stricken with tuberculosis at a time when other institutions refused to do the same.
