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. 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. Part author - illustrator - filmmaker, Vashti Harrison is an artist originally from Onley, Virginia. Additionally, since I saw them as children dressing up as famous women, I wanted the page to feel like they're playing pretend. Among these biographies, readers will find heroes, role models and everyday women who did extraordinary things.

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. It wonderful to remind kids of what potential is in them and to see what others have already achieved. 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! 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. 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, young readers will find heroes, role models and everyday women who did extraordinary things. The charming, information-filled full-color spreads show the Leaders as both accessible and aspirational so reader knows they, too, can grow up to do something amazing. Readers will meet trailblazing women like Mary Blair, an American modernist painter who had a major influence on how color was used in early animated films, actor/inventor Hedy Lamar, environmental activist Wangari Maathai, architect Zaha Hadid, filmmaker Agnes Varda, and physicist Chien-Shiung Wu.

Sometimes non-fiction is also a fantastic way to tempt a reluctant reader into sitting down with a book. I've been on a quest to find books that aren't entirely full of white heterosexual middle class imagery.After a brief stint in television as a production coordinator, she is now a freelance graphic designer and a picture-book illustrator. 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. 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 resulted in this beautiful and profound book, which chronicles the struggles and achievements of historic and contemporary 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 hope to do more events soon, but I am based on the East Coast and may only be able to visit the northeast and midatlantic in the coming months.

For me its also really important to showcase boldness and bravery can come in different shapes and sizes.
