Featuring forty trailblazing women, the book Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History educates and inspires as it relates true stories of breaking boundaries and achieving beyond expectations.

The illustrated book brings 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 can 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.
