After her convoy was ambushed while on patrol in Iraq in March 2003, Shoshana Johnson became the United States' first black female prisoner of war. She was held hostage in Iraq for 22 days after being captured with Jessica Lynch and other members of the 507th Maintenance Company. She survived the ordeal despite having suffered bullet wounds to both of her ankles. Shoshana shared her dramatic story in her 2010 autobiography I'm Still Standing: From Captive U.S. Soldier to Free Citizen -- My Journey Home. In this conversation with María Hinojosa, she relives this military ordeal that changed her life forever, as well as discusses the role of women in combat and the stigma related to psychological injuries
