Included are leaders who were anti-slavery activists and organizers who promoted basic health care, literacy and scholarship within their neighborhoods.

★ "Filling an important void, this picture book delivers stories from a history about which most U.S. children remain woefully ignorant: that of Black Canadian women…A crucial re-education in a likely unfamiliar history and an immersion in noteworthy art all at once." (Kirkus Reviews—starred review 2018-07-24)
Stories of radical and feminist black women.
