In the unit there are different levels of books the instructor can use. The books suggested for reading are about black females who have very different situations, but the one common thread they share is the struggles they have gone through in their lives. The unit gives a broad overview of the the lives of black women who are positive role models for anyone to hold as an example. The unit details the progress of black females from the days of slavery to the the successful business women of today. The unit allows everyone to experience the struggle of a group of people and hopefully to make everyone more open-minded about and tolerant of all groups of people.
