"Bolden, a master of the collective biography, presents an impeccably-researched call to action, imploring black girls to fight the racial and gender imbalance that plagues the STEM field."

"Bolden's lively text, accompanied by archival images, underscores the importance of sharing these stories to understand the long tradition of black women striving in these areas.A worthy addition to the effort to tell a more complete and compelling American history."
