- In Praise of Black Women: Modern African Women

de Simone Schwarz-Bart (Auteur), Andre Schwarz-Bart (Auteur), Rose-Myriam Rejouis (Traduction) Modus Vivendi Publishing (31 mars 2003)
From School Library Journal
Third in a series of four pictorial biographies, this richly illustrated book explores the various historical and cultural contexts in which each of 14 women lived and worked. Evocative artwork, folklore, narratives, and photographs help teens to better understand the subjects' world. They were all born between the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries. Some were powerful and savvy queens, such as Madam Yoko of Sierra Leone, Yaa Asantewa of Ghana, and Zauditu of Ethiopia. A few, including Bessie Head of South Africa, Mariama Ba of Senegal, and Buchi Emecheta of Nigeria, are internationally known literary figures. Others made their mark in political activism, religion, or fashion modeling. One chapter is devoted to Miriam Makeba. Fellow South African Winnie Mandela is also included, with anecdotes from her sprinkled throughout. This volume is full of information that is entertaining, sometimes sad, yet always inspiring and compelling.
