Young, Gifted and Black


Jamia Wilson collates the stories of black people from history and contemporary life, charting how they’ve broken down racial barriers. The positive energy of ‘Young, Gifted and Black‘, the evidence shared of people who have overcome adversity and prejudice, is powerful and inspiring. I appreciate the fact that the stories are of people from different countries and at varying times.

From Serena Williams and Solange, to Kofi Annan, Alexandre Dumas to Pele, the selected 52 skirt every nation, sensibility, talent and strength.

Young, Gifted and Black‘ merits a place in every home and classroom. It is a superb reference point for readers, but an even better inspiration- for anyone and everyone.
