Honoring Be Present: 35 years of Black Women’s Leadership

My life’s mission was to address racial challenges. The hard part was that every conversation about the issue led to a divide. I would speak up, and others would become defensive and shut down. The whole situation felt impossible. I was on a search to find a way to talk about race that created an opening instead of exacerbating a divide.

Tiffany (author) and Lille Allen of Be Present

It’s important for me to lay out the history and the steps to presence the leadership and brilliance of Black women.

This work speaks to the depths of my spirit. And my soul’s prayer is that I may presence it always.
