Mary Ellen Pleasant - The Queen of Intuition

Queens of the Mines features the authentic stories of gold rush women who blossomed from the camouflaged, twisted roots of California. She was one of the richest and most powerful people in California, and she was a black woman.  Known as the “mother of civil rights in California”, one of San Francisco’s most notorious madams, a savior of the downtrodden, an exploiter of the wealthy and the “Queen of Intuition”, while breaking racial taboos she played a remarkable role in the early years of San Francisco, and I want you to know her name.
