Description

An important book for readers of all ages, this beautifully illustrated and engagingly written volume brings to life true stories of black men in history.

Part author - illustrator - filmmaker, Vashti Harrison is an artist originally from Onley, Virginia. Backgrounds are minimal, rendered mostly in pale shades, which leaves the focus on the women and helps ground them in history. Not just for girls, this is an inspiring book for any child as it shows how a determined nature, ambition and hard work can make important change in the world. For publicity, events, or interviews please use the form below to be connected with the publicist from my publisher LittleBrown Books for Young Readers. Vashti Harrison , author and illustrator of the bestselling Little Leaders: Bold Women In Black History , is an artist, author and filmmaker with a passion for storytelling.

Among these biographies, readers will find aviators and artists, politicians and pop stars, athletes and activists. I don't have official word on all of this and may need to defer to my publisher and agent for a lot of things, but here I've answered some of the most frequent questions I get about Little Leaders! 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.

Though it’s a noticeably US-focused selection, there are British women featured among the 50 too, such as Diane Abbot, Tessa Sanderson and Shirley Bassey, which is nice to see.

There are lots of familiar names in the book such as: Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks and Nina Simone, but there are some lesser known names (to me) so I'll be learning too. She earned her MFA in film/video from California Institute of the Arts, where she snuck into animation and illustration classes to learn from Disney and DreamWorks legends. It makes a refreshing change to see some pages filled with strong powerful determined achieving Women. Sometimes non-fiction is also a fantastic way to tempt a reluctant reader into sitting down with a book.
