About this deal

This fascinating non-fiction picture book explores the life of an inspirational woman who overcame race and gender barriers to become an internationally acclaimed scientist. After a brief stint in television as a production coordinator, she is now a freelance graphic designer and a picture-book illustrator. The appeal is very much that of [ Goodnight Stories for] Rebel Girls or Frances Lincoln's Little People, Big Dreams series, but this is the only such collection to focus exclusively on black women.

My daughter is only 18 months old now but I want her to grow up and be inspired by the great women who came before her. I love thinking that they're closing their eyes, looking inside themselves, to step into the shoes of these famous people, emulating their story. It resulted in this beautiful and profound book, which chronicles the struggles and achievements of historic and contemporary black women. She earned her BA from the University of Virginia as a double major in Media Studies and Studio Art with concentrations in Film and Cinematography.

The legends in this book span centuries and continents, but what they have in common is that each one has blazed a trail for generations to come.

I've been on a quest to find books that aren't entirely full of white heterosexual middle class imagery. 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.

She then went on to receive her MFA in Film and Video from CalArts where she snuck into Animation classes to learn from Disney and Dreamworks legends. This fascinating picture book presents a selection of true stories about incredible people who have challenged injustice and worked together to make the world a better place. For me its also really important to showcase boldness and bravery can come in different shapes and sizes.
