What's Inside

Expand your imagination

A full-color book that pairs bold illustrations and exceptional storytelling. Each chapter introduces a group of pioneers who’ve freed themselves—and others—little by little. We'll see how these pioneers used their personal struggles to make a change during pivotal historical periods, like World War II and the Civil Rights Movement, building towards an abundant future for all.

Turn thoughts into action

Readers will discover their own power within to exercise self-determination through our signature "Let's learn about it" and “Let’s talk about it!” sections, where readers can connect with a loved one to discuss their thoughts out loud or can use it as a journaling prompt to reflect on their response in confidence.

Chart your own path

With every chapter you read, you’ll feel empowered and inspired to take action. With 58% of Americans in 2022 unable to name a single prominent Asian American*, the time is now to close this representation gap, so that you can cultivate the confidence to reach for the stars.
