Our Brave Foremothers
Coming from Workman Press in April, 2023:
By Me, Rozella Kennedy - Illustrations by Joelle Avelino
Inspired by her own foremothers’ legacies and the friendships formed throughout her life, Rozella Kennedy centers and celebrates the stories of 100 Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous women—both famous and little-known—who changed the course of US history.
Featuring women of color changemakers, risk-takers, and visionaries, artists, scientists, activists, and more, Our Brave Foremothers is a rich collection of short biographies detailing the women’s accomplishments, hardships, passions, and joys alongside inspirational quotes from the women and beautifully detailed artwork by illustrator Joelle Avelino. Each spread also includes an actionable prompt that encourages readers to impact the world around them in positive ways, as a tribute to the foremothers in the book and their own.
