Publisher's Summary

This audiobook and its beautiful accompanying illustrations introduce listeners of all ages to 40 women who changed the world.

Featuring 40 trailblazing black women in American history, Little Leaders educates and inspires as it relates true stories of breaking boundaries and achieving beyond expectations. Illuminating narration 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, listeners 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 here 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Little Leaders

This book does a really good job of introducing the contributions of African-American women to American civilization. There is a very good mix of women, you may or may not know, who have significant accomplishments and overcame enormous obstacles to achieve their dreams. When thinking of representation, this book is an effective one for showing young African-American women of what they are capable; to demonstrate they are only limited by what they can imagine.
