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 - from nurse Mary Seacole, to politician Diane Abbott, mathematician Katherine Johnson and singer Shirley Bassey.

Among these biographies, readers will find heroes, role models and everyday women who did extraordinary things.

Industry Reviews

Be bold. Be courageous. Be you. Be true. That's the message of this empowering, informative, and beautifully illustrated book. * Brightly *
This one is for shelves everywhere. Read it with all your sons and daughters and share it far and wide. * Picture Books Blogger *
A book to put into primary classrooms, secondary school libraries, to buy for families, and to share and discuss wherever and whenever you can - I certainly intend to. * Red Reading Hub *
Although there is a little more recognition of BAME and diverse voices in history now, and a little more recognition that all people need to be represented in publishing, there is still a gap in the market for such titles. This beautiful little book aims to plug one gap. * Minerva Reads *
As long as we're celebrating complicated women - women who have done good and bad things, women who have succeeded, women who have failed but tried, women who are brilliant on a world stage, women who are brilliant in their own communities - I'll carry on pressing these books into the hands of women I know. * Phoenix magazine *
