Featuring forty trailblazing black women in American history, Little Leaders educates and inspires as it relates true stories of breaking boundaries and achieving beyond expectations. Illuminating text paired with irresistible illustrations bring to life both iconic and lesser-known female figures of Black history such as abolitionist Sojourner Truth, pilot Bessie Coleman, chemist Alice Ball, politician Shirley Chisholm, mathematician Katherine Johnson, poet Maya Angelou, and filmmaker Julie Dash.

Among these biographies, readers will find heroes, role models, and everyday women who did extraordinary things – bold women whose actions and beliefs contributed to making the world better for generations of girls and women to come. Whether they were putting pen to paper, soaring through the air or speaking up for the rights of others, the women profiled in these pages were all taking a stand against a world that didn’t always accept them.

The leaders in this book may be little, but they all did something big and amazing, inspiring generations to come.

Why are they little if they're supposed to be bold?
"I created these characters to be little girls dressing up as famous women. The character is defined by its sweetness and friendliness. I think its great to show that boldness can come from the Little as well as the Big. For me its also really important to showcase boldness and bravery can come in different shapes and sizes. It can also come in the form of the quiet, shy or introverted." - Vashti Harrison

Ages 9 to 12
