Sanders, Maude

Dr. Maude A. Sanders’ (1903 -1995) life was exemplary because of her compassion, kindness, networking and knowledge. Jackson said that her mother had her youngest sister “up North”, during a time when African American doctors were not allowed to work in mainstream hospitals. Dr. Sanders treated her mother’s pregnancy until she delivered her baby at Saint Francis Medical Center, whereas Dr. Sanders had to recruit a white doctor to treat her mother in the hospital. In libraries across the world, sits a three volume set of reference books titled “Black Women in America”, which were edited by Darlene Clark Hine (second edition). Dr. Maude A. Sanders can be found in volume 2, on page 493. The entry is brief, but emphasizes her education and retirement after 48 years of service.
