I absolutely love this book and wish it was around when I was growing up! The beautiful illustrations replete with a short biography of 40 trail blazing black women who made great contributions in every sphere: academia; art, economics; entertainment; film; letters; science; social causes and space travel. I actually bought this book for my nieces, but I'll be ordering a copy for myself.
This is a beautiful book that showcases the brilliance of African American women throughout history and the present. It is very inspiring and informative. I will be purchasing more to spread the inspiration around to others.
