De'Shawna Yamini

“If She Can Do It, I Can, Too!” is a children’s book about Black women, created by Black women, but for everyone!

Author De’Shawna Yamini served as a coordinator for a Black men student success initiative at the college level for over five years. While completing coursework in African American Studies alongside her students, she received an assignment to complete a children’s book about any subject in Black history. She wrote: “If She Can Do It, I Can, Too!”

Encouraged to publish the book by friends and family, it is now a reality! The women featured paved the way so the path would be smoother for generations to come!
