Dana Franklin, Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

It takes much strength, and love, to endure the time travel that Dana had to experience to save her own life. Having to come back to the present and face her white husband after enduring much brutality at the hands of slave owners was a feat many could not endure. Dana was the ultimate self-sacrificing character and readers of Kindred revered her for it.
