Cultural and sporting heroes like Stevie Wonder, Oprah Winfrey and Serena Williams. And key scientists and pioneers including aviator Bessie Coleman and Arctic explorer Matthew Henson. Like, did you know that a black man was probably the first person to reach the North Pole? If that’s a no, that’s exactly why you need this book!
