LITTLE LEADERS: BOLD WOMEN IN BLACK HISTORY
Pull up a chair, sit down on the porch. Get ready to be captivated by Robin Hart’s reading of Vashti Harrison’s gem of a book.
From the well-known to the unsung, Harrison brings readers and listeners the true stories of 40 black woman who made their marks on American history. From the often-studied Rosa Parks and Sojourner Truth to the celebrated Maya Angelou, the daredevil pilot Bessie Coleman and the revered politician Shirley Chisholm, each woman was extraordinary – in her thinking, activism, artistry and public service. Each woman broke racial barriers with strength, commitment and accomplishment.
Learning about these women through Harrison’s stories is fascinating. Listening to Hart’s elegant reading is a pleasure.
