Sarah Baartman

So who is Sarah Baartman, you might ask.
Well, i found her story pretty interesting...sad, but interesting. She was famously called " the Hottentot Venus" by the western world (specifically Europeans). Originally from South Africa, she moved to Europe only to be a part of a "freak" show, due to her physical difference. 
Anyhoo, i believe this video does a better deal in explaining her story.
