I was asked by Hachette to illustrate a series of books called Civil Rights Stories – Each book is a chronological selection of key civil rights moments and movements. The titles are: Human Rights, LGBTQ+ Rights, Racial Equality, Refugees and Homelands, Slavery, Women's Rights and Suffrage. The Civil Rights Stories series is a vital resource for younger readers aged 7+ who are being introduced to these topics, are interested in anti-racism or are studying these topics in school. I was so proud to be part of this project, in contributing to creating awareness in younger readers (and their parents!) on such vital and pertinent topics.
