Little Leaders, Bold Women in Black History
by Vashti Harrison
Little, Brown and Company, 2018
Little Leaders celebrates 40 well-known and little-known women who changed history in little or big ways. From currently popular women, like Oprah Winfrey, to little-known women like Alma Woodsey Thomas. Like other collections of women who made a difference, I’m amazed at the variety and caliber of careers, especially those in history where women having careers wasn’t allowed. From medical researchers, to physicians, to spies, to astronauts, engineers, filmmakers and more. For many of these women, they made their mark against all odds, just quietly going about their work. An inspiring and eye-opening collection for girls and boys from all backgrounds.
