Editorial Reviews

Toronto artist and writer Naomi M. Moyer shines a brilliant spotlight on these woefully under-acknowledged women and their accomplishments. Moyer’s spectacular acrylic, stencil, ink and pencil illustrations accompany the well-written, engaging biographical summaries…A must-have addition to all school and public libraries.

— CM Magazine

This strikingly illustrated collective biography captures some of the incredible life stories of unsung Canadian heroes who broke racial, social, political, and other boundaries to make life better for other Black Canadians.

— Kirkus - Starred Review

History buffs, educators, and even adventure-seekers love to discover unsung movers and shakers—especially stories that include elusive African American heroines whose lives and achievements have been largely ignored even though they have made an impact on society. Black Women Who Dared by Naomi M. Moyer is one of those books.
