Shirley Temple Black dies at 85.
Shirley Temple Black retired from Hollywood around age twenty and later she became a diplomat in the 1960's. She was known for her breast cancer advocacy after having a mastectomy. With her help, women were encouraged to not be afraid and speak up about women's health.
Ms. Black served as a diplomat to Czechoslovakia and Ghana during the cold war. She was considered to be an amazing diplomat who believed that women should have a voice in politics. She was married for 50 years and was a beloved mother and grandmother.
Do you have any memories of Shirley Temple? I remember watching her movies all through my life. They were uplifting and inspiring whenever I watched them. Although I grew up in Los Angeles, I never saw her in person.
~Rest In Peace, Shirley Temple Black~
