Bringing household names like Serena Williams and Harriet Tubman together with lesser-known but highly deserving figures such as Robert Abbott and Dr. Charles Drew, this collection is a celebration of all that African Americans have achieved, despite everything they have had to overcome.

Meet forty-four of America’s most impressive heroes in this collective biography of African American figures authored by the team at ESPN’s TheUndefeated. is a website owned by ESPN that focuses on the intersection of sports, race, and culture.

Robert Ball has been a practicing graphic designer since 2000, and has illustrated throughout his career. His work carries the dynamism of comic-book art, mixed with an eye for the absurd, influenced by a misspent youth poring over the pages of Marvel comics and 2000AD.
