I founded Roots of the Spirit as my commitment to help uproot racism through storytelling, education, and the arts. We offer a speakers bureau, antiracism workshops, wellness retreats, and the Roots of the Spirit podcast.
When my mother was just a teenager, she made history as federal troops escorted her and eight other black students into Little Rock Central High to desegregate the school, as a white mob yelled racist remarks and tried to block their entrance. The group became known as the Little Rock Nine.
When they finally made it inside the school doors, the verbal and physical abuse continued for years.
As the civil rights movement grew she met my father, a white man, and they organized nonviolent protests and fought for change. When you’re a biracial daughter of the civil rights movement… well, it’s complicated!
Now booking a variety of workshops
