On Wednesday, November 20, Vashti Harrison visited with 2nd through 5th graders at the Lower School to celebrate the publication of her inspiring book, Little Legends: Exceptional Men in Black History. Vashti is an artist, author, and filmmaker with a passion for storytelling. She earned her MFA in film and video from California Institute of the Arts, where she snuck into animation and illustration classes to learn from Disney and DreamWorks legends. There she rekindled a love for drawing and painting. Now she uses her love for both film and illustration to craft beautiful stories for children. Her other books include Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World and Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History. Vashti has also illustrated the recent books Sulwe by Lupita Nyong’o and Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry.
