Ann Deborah Lynn knew she was born to be leader despite her circumstances as an African American in Lexington, Kentucky. Born October 3, 1810 to William Henry Lynn and Sarah Mae Lynn, her vision to be an inspiring Civil Rights Activist would be the biggest challenge of her life. Her father, William was a slave captured in Angola, Africa in broad daylight and her mother, Sarah was a daughter of slaves from Guinea. Free blacks in the South couldn’t express how they felt and wasn’t able to travel as freely as the free slaves in the Northern cities. The North also had more to offer because they were becoming more urban which meant better jobs, transportation and growing middle-class. Ann always knew she wanted to travel and speak to other slaves

Jane Goodall would have a naturalistic intelligence because she recognizes the patterns in nature. Goodall understands animals so precisely. She was very connected with the chimps she studied for 55 years in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania. She was very sensitive towards the chimps, and appreciated every aspect of them. She knew how to interact with them because she observed them for so long. This gave her the chance to know what she could do with the chimps and what they would not like. This is why I think Jane Goodall is a naturalist.
