Picture Book Review: Trailblazers

Trailblazer: The Story of Ballerina Raven Wilkinson

The story of Raven Wilkinson  - the first African American woman to dance for a major ballet company.

The title says it all: a wonderful tale about her courage, determination, and race. I loved learning about her love of dancing. She struggled but achieved so much. I love that she's the inspiration for Misty Copeland (who wrote the forward). I love the pictures of the two of them at the end. A powerful book to share with anyone, but especially those who love dancing!
