"...to be revisited again and again...The candy-colored pages and straightforward stories are hard to resist..." -The New York Times

Meet 52 icons of colour from the past and present in this celebration of inspirational black achievement. This is a collection of stories about change makers to inspire and empower the next generation.

Jamia Wilson has carefully curated this range of black icons and the book is stylishly brought together by Andrea Pippins' colourful and celebratory illustrations.

Inspired by Nina Simone's song "To Be Young, Gifted, and Black," this beautiful book is a perfect introduction to both historic and present-day heroes.

Meet figureheads, leaders and pioneers such as Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks, as well as cultural trailblazers and athletes like Stevie Wonder, Oprah Winfrey and Serena Williams.

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.
