Book Synopsis
Dada Rafiki is a historical and inspirational publication that honors the legacy and spirit of forty-one phenomenal women, age 65 and older, who have left their “footprints on Cincinnati history”. (2 women under age sixty-five are featured in the book posthumously). The book, which is a documentation of the Dada rafiki: Sisters of Legacy exhibit that was displayed at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in 2013, challenges audiences to become people that change the world in their own space and time. The book features a potpourri of ordinary women who have accomplished extraordinary things. These examples demonstrate that change agents lie within everyone of us-- and that we have the ability to change the world right where we are! The goal is to empower young women and the community at large through art.
