I Dream a World: Portraits of Black Women Who Changed Americaby Brian Lanker, Barbara Summers
Many changes have
First published in 1989, I Dream a World, a collection of 75 portraits, has become a landmark in publishing history. Now the 10th anniversary of this book is being celebrated with this completely revised and updated edition that charts the achievements of a remarkable group of African-American women and their continued impact on the world.
Many changes have occurred since Brian Lanker set out to capture the faces of both the prominent and unsung women who've made a difference. Sixteen of the original 76 women are no longer among us, including Septima Clark, Barbara Jordan, Clara McBride (Mother) Hale, and Betty Shabazz. But, as this new edition reveals, all of them have left behind an enduring legacy for future generations.
Most importantly, in revising and updating I Dream a World, we celebrate not only the event of its publication, but the continued achievements of an extraordinary group of women who remain vitally alive as role models for the next century.
