Ladies First: Revelations of a Strong Woman (2000)

As hip hop's first female emcee to land a major record deal and at just 19 years of age, Dana Owens, better known as Queen Latifah, is unquestionably the First Lady of Hip Hop. Documenting her rise from Newark, New Jersey, to a chart-topping musician, a television star, Academy Award-nominated actress as well as successful business woman with her production company, Flavor Unit, and Cover Girl makeup line, Queen Collection, Latifah has demolished barriers for women in the industry. Her book is compelling and empowering, especially for young women coming of age.
