African Power Girls


African Power Girls is a compendium of some of the most inspiring stories of past and present female African leaders. Telling stories of women like Queen Amina of Zaria, Hadiza Ladi Kwali, Bisoye Tejuosho, Grace Alele Williams, and Melody Millicent Danquah, it captures the strength, wisdom, victory, and fearless, driven purpose of African women in time past who refused to succumb to societal norms and used their voices, abilities, and vision to lay a foundation of becoming an inspiration for other women to follow.

The book, originally borne out of Adebola Williams’ desire to give his goddaughters a gift that underscores how powerful and extraordinary they are, regardless of limiting societal gender roles placed on the female child and women in general, has become a priceless gift for every girl-child (and boy-child) across Africa and beyond.

The book aims to give young African girls a voice and empower them to take up space in different fields, dream big, and know that whatever they set their minds to achieve can be done.
