To celebrate Black History Month, I decided to illustrate one inspiring Black woman a day, for the entire month of February 2017.
At the end of the month, I will create a digital, printable coloring book that combines all 28 of the drawings.
I will donate half of the final sum to NAACP, and the remaining half to ACLU.
If two hundred of you buy one book each, we will hit our goal of $3000!
You will receive the downloadable file via email by March 5th.
Hope you’ll join me in working to reach this goal!
The twenty-eight women I am illustrating are luminaries in politics, military, sciences and the arts, not to mention activism and philanthropy.
In addition to North Americans, I have also included women from the greater Black diaspora (e.g. Zadie Smith, Felicita “La Prieta” Méndez, Celia Cruz, Nancy Morejón) to celebrate their contribution to Pan-American history.
There are many more extraordinary women I left out, whom I hope to honor in future projects.
