About the Author

Vashti Harrison, author and illustrator of the bestselling Little Leaders: Bold Women In Black History, is an artist, author and filmmaker with a passion for storytelling. She earned her MFA in film/video from California Institute of the Arts, where she snuck into animation and illustration classes to learn from Disney and DreamWorks legends. There she rekindled a love for drawing and painting. Now she uses her love of both film and illustration to craft beautiful stories for children.

Reviews

"Harrison's book focuses on great black women, and it's lovely to see Lorna Simpson and Gwen Ifill ascend to the ranks of Marian Anderson and Bessie Coleman. Harrison wants readers to imagine themselves in such august company; her adorable illustrations depict all of these figures as a little black girl, an everygirl, in a variety of costumes and backdrops."--New York Times Book Review
"Beautifully designed and chock-full of information, this is a fantastic survey of black women who made and continue to make history."--School Library Journal
"Little Leaders will undoubtedly inspire a new generation of high achievers."--Shelf Awareness
"A book of amazing, phenomenal women."--The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
"If you want your young reader to have some insight into the role that black women played in the history of this country, this is the perfect gift."--NBC News
"This appealing book reminds young readers that every great leader began as a little leader, taking their first steps towards something big."--A Mighty Girl
"This book just begs to be picked up.... Purely magical. Perfect for exploring together at bedtime or for children to browse independently, a gorgeous invitation for children of all backgrounds, and especially for black girls, to learn about black women who were pioneers."--Kirkus Reviews
