  • Maya overcame her trauma to tell the story of being Black in America, becoming one of the century’s most influential and visionary writers.
  • Martin grew up in the harsh world of segregation, and came to show the world that the best weapon against hate is love.
  • Rosa took a stand against what she knew was wrong, igniting a movement that sought to unite a divided world.

Each of these moving books features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the figure’s life.
