Taking inspiration from the Nina Simone song, this colourful book is a wonderful introduction to both historic and present-day icons of colour. Brought to life by writer Jamia Wilson and beautifully illustrated by Andrea Pippins, these heroes include leaders, pioneers, cultural trailblazers and athletes.
“All children deserve to see themselves represented positively in the books they read. Highlighting the talent and contributions of black leaders and changemakers from around the world, readers of all backgrounds will be empowered to discover what they too can achieve. Strong, courageous, talented, and diverse, these extraordinary men and women’s achievements will inspire a new generation to chase their dream…whatever it may be.”
Throughout June 10% of sales from this book and our other anti-racist titles will be donated to The Black Curriculum, an initiative that teaches Black history to 8-16 year olds using a range of art modes such as drama and poetry.
Recommended for ages 7-10 but younger children will enjoy this too.
