About We Go High
Follow the life lessons of 30 remarkable women of colour - past and present - who have made their mark on society and culture.
"When you are struggling and you start thinking about giving up, I want you to remember something... and that is the power of hope." - Michelle Obama (White House speech, 2017)
From activists to scientists, artists to sporting icons, each woman's story is different - but all have in common a deep-seated resilience to fight against the prejudices and barriers to success that women of colour face on a daily basis. The book features political powerhouses such as Kamala Harris and Stacey Abrams, as well as businesswomen like Arundhati Bhattacharya and Angelica Ross, and writers Michaela Coel and Amanda Gorman.
With 30 stunning, specially commissioned portraits, We Go High not only celebrates their achievements but uncovers the personal beliefs, attitudes, and determination that drive them.
