  • The motorcycle queen of Miami, Bessie Stringfield, a rider who paved the way for Black bikers across the country!
  • The real life story of Maya Angelou, a remarkable and iconic poet and visionary!
  • The fantastically feminist, totally true story of three astonishing writers: it can only be the Brontë sisters!
