Cheryl Willis Hudson is the author of Brave Black First, a book commissioned by the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture celebrating the outstanding and amazing accomplishments of 50 African Women. Spanning the age from teenager to elder, these women have made great strides in and for the African American Community as well as the greater world. Their work, years, decades and even centuries ago, paved the way for the next generation of dynamic trailblazers. This collection of notable women includes Ida B. Wells, Oprah Winfrey, Phyllis Whatley, Maxine Waters, Serena Williams, Simone Biles and others. Cheryl has also collaborated on other African American centered books for children and adults. One such book, The Talk, which she wrote with her husband Wade Hudson, talks about love, life and race. It also includes contributions from other notable authors. Charles Collectibles and Books gives 5 out of 5 stars to Brave Black First. This is a must read for all ages, especially for women of African descent. It will empower and serve as a blueprint for the next generation of leaders.
