 Lifting As They Climbed takes readers on a journey through the sites and landmarks in Chicago that illuminate the stories of Black women trailblazers —activists, artists, community leaders, and more— who transformed the city and nation.

About Me.

I'm an author, creative director, and filmmaker. I've written two books in the Lifting As They Climbed series in collaboration with educator and organizer, Mariame Kaba. I cofounded the Chicago Justice gallery and have developed over 85 public programs, exhibitions and conferences in Chicago.


I utilize community engagement, digital design, and communication technologies to strengthen community institutions, and advance justice-based organizations with over 15 years of experience in arts and communications.
