A fun new book for children that teaches them about Black trailblazers who have impacted the world through their actions and inventions.

From Black Inventors to Black Scientists. Take your child on an adventure and travel through time to meet historical black trailblazers who changed the game. Countdown to liftoff with Katherine Johnson who helped pioneer U.S. crewed space missions. Safely cross the street with Garrett Morgan who invented the traffic signal or even sing your heart out with James West’s invention of the microphone.

Experience an array of rich Black history. There are Black scientists and Black inventors such as George Washington Carver and Madam C.J. Walker we all know. There are also dozens of Black trailblazers that we don’t, all of whom have accomplished remarkable things in literature, entertainment, education, STEM, business, military and government services, politics and law, activism, sports, spirituality, and more.

 

My name is M.J. Fievre. I’m a writer, an educator, an editor, a poet, and a reader. My love for the written word started in Haiti. At sixteen years old, I published my first book⁠—a novel⁠—titled Le Feu de la vengeance. Once I started writing, I couldn’t stop. I wrote children’s books, I wrote a memoir, I wrote a poetry collection, and I wrote nonfiction books for Black teens. I am now based in Central Florida, 904,000 miles away from where it all started, and I am still writing. 

I am the author of the Badass Black Girl series, which addresses issues of concern for Black girls and young women. The seminal title, Badass Black Girl, released in 2020, has reached the top-ten bestselling spot in three categories on Amazon’s rankings for the U.S. and the U.K. Empowered Black Girl (2021), the second title in the series, raises awareness and provides insight on issues Black girls and women encounter in society while empowering them to take action through self-discovery and activism. The third title in the series, Resilient Black Girl provides Black teen girls a better understanding of the effects of racism and equips them with skills for navigating spaces in their daily lives.  (from https://mjfievre.com/ )
