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. In the beautiful pages of Our Brave Foremothers , discover an intergenerational, intercultural bouquet of Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous women lifted into the significance that they deserve.. From Etel Adnan to Mary Jones, Thelma Garcia Buchholdt to Pura Belpre to Zitkala-SŒa, here are 100 women of color who left a lasting mark on United States history. Including both famous and little-known names, the thoughtful profiles and detailed portraits of these women herald their achievements and passions.. 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 Idar, 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.
