The story of thirteen African American women who followed their hearts and changed America, now in paperback. Joyce Hansen's brief, well-crafted biographies, and the striking black-and-white photographs that accompany them, reveal the remarkable strength of thirteen African American women. Spanning over a century, these women, including Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Marian Wright Edelman, Toni Morrison, and Mae C. Jamison, blazed uncharted paths in journalism, politics, education, law, science, and the arts.
