It is 2019 and I’m ready for books about Black women that history hasn’t forgotten but also hasn’t had the chance to share them for bigger audiences through mediumsThis time this offering comes in the form of a children’s book I had no clue who Bessie Stringfield was Her name did not ring a bell I did know of another Bessie Bessie Coleman was the first woman of African American and Native American descent to hold a pilot license But this Bessie Stringfield who was she Some research on my end revealed that she was the first African American woman to travel solo across the United States on a motorcycle among many other great accomplishmentsFast Enough Bessie Stringfield’s First Ride is an imagined account of a young Bessie Stringfield who wants she wants to ride and she wants to ride fast Yet she needs the validation and courage to do so Young Bessie is a little girl who is taunted and left behind and verbally devalued again and again yet she loves her bike and the power she has riding itIt’s a bright and colorful affair and the dream seuences of our heroine riding across bodies of water and across outer space are fun and eye candy They instantly spur up the imagination that girls girls that look like Bessie Stringfield with brown skin and afro puffs can do anything–not just the impossible This makes for a great vehicle for representing not just the future ueen of motorcycles from Florida for younger readers but representing children of color and specifically little Black girls in books for a younger age groupRead the rest of my review here

Fast EnoughRst African American woman to travel solo across the United States on a motorcycle Not only was she fast but she was a true adventurer daring to ride to places unsafe for African Americans in the 1930s and ’40s Fast Enough is an inspirational story for anyone who’s been told they are not enough. Have you ever been told that you were not enough While all of us have experienced that to some extent it’s the lot of some to experience it Bessie’s Springfield’s story is an inspiring tale of figuring out what you’re capable of in the face of a society that tells you you’re not Plus this is a great children’s book with some fantastic art I’ve been following Joel Christian Gill for a while now and he’s a great writer and amazing artist I’m glad he’s telling us the stories no one else will Thanks to NetGalley Diamond Book Distributors and Lion Forge for a copy in return for an honest review
