Mabel Williams, with her late husband Robert F. Williams, met with Malcolm X, Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara and Mao Tse Tung to help internationalize support for the Black Liberation Movement.
Kathleen Cleaver was Communications Secretary and the first woman on the Central Committee of the Black Panther Party.
