For me, those dreams started when I heard the stories of my rich heritage. When I read about Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman and Mary McLeod Bethune and Frederick Douglass, I knew that there was possibility for me. Oprah Winfrey on the role books played in her childhood.

We love how Mya Gosling ingeniously reduced each of Shakepeare's plays to three (or five) comic panels. See the full set here.
