A one-of-a-kind puzzle featuring groundbreaking African American women, published in collaboration with the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Based on the children's book Brave. Black. First., this puzzle celebrates the artists, athletes, activists, politicians, and writers who championed civil rights in their communities. From Sojourner Truth and Ruby Bridges to Angela Davis and Michelle Obama, the collaged image captures the iconic moments of African American women whose heroism and bravery rewrote the American story for the better.
The included poster offers additional biographical information, serving as both a handy reference tool and a beautiful way to honor these heroes on a wall or in a school locker.
