In Her Footsteps
101 Remarkable Black Women From The Queen Of Sheba To Queen LatifahBook - 2000
The life stories of these daughters of Africa are both powerful and painful, but always awe-inspiring in their truth and candour. Sweeping across history and over continents, In Her Footsteps portrays the energy, creativity, and resilience of Black women such as Ana Quirot, a Cuban runner who overcame life-threatening burns to triumph in the 1996 Olympic games; Yelena Khanga, a Russian woman who hosts the most popular television show in Russia and performs with a comedy troop in New York; Toni Stone, one of the few women to play professional baseball; and Flo Kennedy, one of the most effective activists that civil rights, feminism and gay rights ever had.
