By her own writing and illustration she presents 40 amazing black women in African American history. She educates and inspires by telling the stories of women who have have become icons and a great example for our little ones.

Bedtime story

You can easily pick up this book to read as a bedtime story as it takes you through the exeptional journey each and every icon has experienced in their lives. It is a beautiful summary of the accomplishments of some of the greatest female role models that can be of great inspiration to children today. The illustrations are heartwarming, sweet, innocent yet standing in their own power with ease. Their stance radiates a feeling of "I did that... And I am proud". What better way to send the kids to bed than with the images of greatness of many people before them?
