About Vashti Harrison

Filmmaker and illustrator Vashti Harrison can now add another title to her resume: author. Respected for various projects focused on Caribbean heritage and folklore, in December 2017 she released her first book, Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History, with words and illustrations that explore the stories of 40 different black women who each played a significant role in American history. The book was so well received that it became a #1 Best Seller in Amazon’s Children's Historical Biographies category. If you aren’t familiar with Vashti’s style, she fills Instagram with her playful and inspiring characters, with nearly 40K @vashtiharrison followers inspired by her artwork.
