Trailblazers, Black Women Who Helped Make Americ - American Firsts/American Icons, Volume 2 (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This continuation of Gabrielle David's odyssey into the lives and careers of 150 brilliant black women from the eighteenth century to the present brings together biographies of women who blazed uncharted paths alongside powerful photographs that illustrate their lives. This second volume of her Trailblazers series features women who have worked in the aviation, aerospace, law, journalism, math, science, technology, the military, and in the visual, literary, and performing arts. Each of these sections is preceded by a brief introduction from the editor, which provides insight into the significance of these women's stories. In addition to the featured biographies, the book includes an additional section of 200 abridged biographies that acknowledge many more pioneering women. With Trailblazers, David has created an expansive and accessible reference book that provides significant information on the histories of the movements for feminism and civil rights. The book provides a hopeful and inclusive telling of history, one in which black women receive the same recognition as their white and male counterparts. From the foremothers who broke gender and racial barriers to the mighty women working today, Trailblazers turns a much-deserved spotlight on these powerful and inspiring role models. This book will prove to be a vital reference guide for use in schools, libraries, and homes.

Gabrielle David is a multidisciplinary artist, musician, photographer, digital designer, poet, and writer. David is the publisher of 2Leaf Press and serves as the Executive Director Intercultural Alliance of Artists & Scholars, Inc., a NY-based nonprofit organization. Carolina Fung Feng is a Spanish translator, copyeditor, and ESL teacher.
