Description

The book is beautifully illustrated and the mini biographies of the black women is not too wordy so it's quite nice to read. Part author - illustrator - filmmaker, Vashti Harrison is an artist originally from Onley, Virginia.

Sometimes non-fiction is also a fantastic way to tempt a reluctant reader into sitting down with a book. Based on her popular Instagram posts from Black History Month 2017 it features 40 biographies of African American women that helped shape history.

Whether it's International Women's Day or not, it's always worth pointing out and celebrating the – often forgotten or undervalued – achievements of women, both past and present. 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.Vashti Harrison’s beloved illustrations of historical figures — scientists, activists, artists, and more — are the perfect gift for today’s young leaders. It’s excellent that children can get an introduction to lesser-known African American women such as abolitionist Mary Prince and sculptor Augusta Savage, alongside the better-known Rosa Parks and Sojourner Truth.

It harkens back to classic children's illustrations done by Mary Blair or Mr Happy by Roger Hargreaves. Now, utilizing both skillsets, she is passionate about crafting beautiful stories for children and young adults in the film and kidlit worlds.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.
