Product description

I made up my mind to try. I tried and I was successful. – Bessie Coleman

Meet the little leaders. They’re brave. They’re bold. They changed the world.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Did you know the treatment for leprosy was developed by a young scientist called Alice Ball? And Josephine Baker- world famous cabaret singer and dancer- was also a spy for the French resistance?

Featuring 40 trailblazing black women in the world’s history, this book educates and inspires as it relates true stories of women who broke boundaries and exceeded all expectations.

Debut author/illustrator Vashti Harrison pairs captivating text with stunning illustrations as she tells the stories of both iconic and lesser-known female figures of black history, including:

Nurse Mary Seacole Politician Diane Abbott Mathematician Katherine Johnson Singer Shirley Bassey

Inspire your own little leader with the stories of these amazing women.
