Cheryl, Main patron, July 2015, 5 stars:

What an inspiring book! Reading about the lives of various Black women, from different backgrounds and different careers, caused me to admire what a difference one person can make. Many of these ladies are not well known to the public, and yet are doing incredible feats in the communities, the nation, in varied fields of interest. Loved the photos, too!
