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 color face on a daily basis. Featuring political powerhouses such as Kamala Harris and Stacey Abrams, businesswomen like Arundhati Bhattacharya and Angelica Ross, and writers like Michaela Coel and Amanda Gorman, We Go High not only celebrates these remarkable women’s achievements, but uncovers the personal beliefs, attitudes, and determination that drive them.
