  • ​Discover the stories of powerful Black women who shaped American history
  • Research and learn about Black women in history to create entries of your own to “add” to Vashti Harrison’s celebrated book Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History
  • Receive additional hands-on and research-based project prompts which can be completed on your own or get the whole family involved!
