Global Icons

About the series

The Pluto Educational Trust is proud to support the Global Icons series. Books published in this series will celebrate and honour individuals whose thought, activism and enduring work ‘changed the world’. The Global Icons series will publish books in honour of Walter Rodney, who wrote and struggled for the freedom of black and colonised peoples. Our goal is publish Icons who have become historical figures from across the Global South, and from African American communities whose thought or action helped to transform their societies and the wider world.
