Event Description

Seventy women, girls, and nonbinary people who are changing the world.


From the civil rights movement and Stonewall riots to Black Lives Matter and beyond, Blair Imani features seventy champions of progressive social change in Modern HERstory, a colorfully illustrated collection of profiles suitable for all ages. The featured trailblazers come from backgrounds and communities that are traditionally overlooked and under-celebrated: not just women, but people of color, queer people, trans people, disabled people, young people, and people of faith. These powerful stories of the leaders and movements that are changing the world as we know it will inspire readers to become change-makers themselves.


Blair Imani, founder and Executive Director of Equality for HER, a nonprofit educational platform, will be joined in conversation by Jamia Wilson, director of the Feminist Press at CUNY, author of Young, Gifted, and Black and contributor to Together We Rise: Behind the Scenes at the Protest Heard Around the World
