  • $ 14.99

Meet the little leaders. They're brave. They're bold. They changed the world.

These amazing little leaders have changed the world, all because they were talented, clever, and above all, determined.

Little Leaders educates and inspires as it relates the true stories of forty trailblazing black women in American history. Illuminating text paired with irresistible illustrations 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 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.
