"Blessed Frances Gaudet" Frances Joseph Gaudet was an African American prison reformer, missionary, and seamstress. She was instrumental in starting the Juvenile Court in Louisiana and founded Gaudet School for Black Youth in 1902. She was born in Holmesville, Pike County, Mississippi, in 1861.
She is now venerated as a Saint in the Episcopal Church.
Here is my version of her portrait.
