At a time when the largest movement of anti-racist protests #BlackLivesMatter remains on the agenda, nothing is more urgent than celebrating some of the great names in black history and culture who made and still make a difference. From Martin Luther King to Marielle Franco, from Cesária Évora to Barack Obama, this book includes more than 50 biographical stories of exceptional and pioneering people, some iconic, others lesser known, who raised questions, overcame barriers, opened paths, exceeded expectations and inspired generations. They are examples of courage, perseverance and leadership that do not let us forget how we got here and that remind us that we can and must go even further. Exploring the roots and influences of black people who stood up against a world that didn’t always accept them, this book is the perfect starting point for an informed discussion of racism and tolerance.
