On April 11, 2023 Workman Press publishes my book, Our Brave Foremothers: Celebrating 100 Black, Brown, Asian & Indigenous Women Who Changed the Course of History.
Over 200+ pages, beautifully illustrated by the incredible artist Joelle Avelino, author Rozella Kennedy uplifts an intergenerational, intercultural bouquet of Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous women who will light up your life!
From Etel Adnan to Mary Jones, Thelma Garcia Buchholdt to Pura Belpré to Zitkála-Šá, meet 100 amazing foremothers—women of color who left a lasting mark on US history, some famous, some little-known, all passionate, impactful, and incredible!
Following each entry is a prompt that asks you to connect your life to theirs, an inspiring way to understand their influence and the power of their stories.
To consider on a deeper level the devotedness of Clara Brown, the fearlessness of Jovita Idár, the guts of Grace Lee Boggs, or the selflessness of Martha Louise Morrow Foxx. And to be as brave as we each can be—and then beyond that.
