The Hermaphrodite: George Cantey or Georgia Black

In 1951, Ebony Magazine ran a article on the life of Georgia Black who was born George Cantey. This article was reprinted in November of 1974. For 30 years, Georgia Black lived life as a woman and no one knew that she was born male until she was examined by Doctors as she neared her final days.
