In January 2022, Marion Lane published “Women of Colour Made A Difference in the Era of the Revolutionary War” and in October 2022, Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS) honored her for this monumental work at their International AAHGS Book Awards.

A review of the book calls attention to the stories of twelve women, and asks readers to think about what makes a difference: an idea, an object or a deed?

Does it have to be something big or can it be something small?

Does it need to take place over a long period of time or can it be a one-time event?

Should it be directed to a person, a family, a community or the world?
