A celebration of twelve Black women who were pivotal to the civil rights movement and the fight for justice and equal rights in America.

You've heard the names Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King, but what about the many other women who were crucial to the civil rights movement?
 
Told through twelve short biographies, this book celebrates just some of the many Black women--each of whom has been largely underrepresented until now--who were instrumental to the nation's fight for civil rights and the contributions they made in driving the Movement forward.
 
An empowering, eye-opening look at how one person can impact greater change, this book is both a conversation starter and much-needed history lesson for our modern world.
