Black History is not just history - it is the history of people left out of the history books. But this book is different! In this book, we're going to meet 15 amazing Black women. Some were pioneers of the past - and some are doing incredible things today! Learn about Mary Prince, the first Black woman to publish her life story; Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the Godmother of rock and roll; Wangari Maathai, the environmental warrior; and Dina Asher- Smith, the fastest British woman in history! Why not learn about Amazing Men in Black History in the other book in this series too!
