Bright, beautiful and uplifting. Let’s celebrate black awesomeness! Black isn’t just beautiful. Black is powerful. Black is smart. Black is shaking up the world – and always has! Now this book lets you meet 52 icons of colour, past and present, who dared to chase their dreams and take on the world. There are pioneering leaders and activists like Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks. There are cultural and sporting heroes. (Think Stevie Wonder, Oprah Winfrey and Serena Williams.) And there are scientists and pioneers like aviator Bessie Coleman and Arctic explorer Matthew Henson. Like, did you know that a black man was probably the first person ever to reach the North Pole? If that’s a no, that’s exactly why you need this book!
