Franklin

 [frank´lin]
Martha M. (1870–1968). Founder of the National Association of Colored Graduate Nurses and activist for racial equality in nursing. Her concern for improved professional status for black nurses led to the foundation of the NACGN in 1908. The goals of the NACGN were to promote the standards and welfare of all nurses and to eliminate racial discrimination in the nursing profession. The organization was merged with the American Nurses' Association in 1951.
