While watching a segment on famous ghost tours of the world I discovered Mary Ellen Pleasant who is said to haunt San Francisco. Apparently she died a little miffed over some bad press she got in 1857. I’d never heard of her and my interest led me to a little research. I found a dynamic American, a pillar of female strength, a Diva who broke every rule far before her time.
Who is your favorite Diva?

Mary Ellen Pleasant; former slave, indentured servant, plantation owner, abolitionist, successful San Francisco entrepreneur,litigator, multimillionaire.
