Harriet Tubman escaped slavery, but she returned often to the South to lead slaves to freedom. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus and sparked a protest that changed America. These two, along with Sojourner Truth, Mary McLeod Bethune, Biddy Mason, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Ella Josephine Baker, Dorothy Irene Height, Fannie Lou Harner, and Shirley Chisholm are ten of many who let their light shine brightly on the darkness of discrimination. Stephen Alcorn's stylized full-page portraits brim with symbols and enrich the lively narrative. A Coretta Scott King Author Honor book!

Her mother is a teacher and her father is a great storyteller, so growing up surrounded by books and stories is what inspired Andrea Davis Pinkney to choose a career as an author. The first official story she remembers writing was in second grade — it was about her family. Pinkney was born in Washington, D.C., and raised in Connecticut. She went to Syracuse University, where she majored in journalism. After college, she followed her dream and worked as an editor for Essence magazine, but after watching her husband, Caldecott Award-winning artist Brian Pinkney, illustrate children's books, she decided to switch jobs and became involved in book publishing.
Andrea Davis Pinkney currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
