As a part of our series on women who are changing the game, today we present Gennette Cordova, journalist, copywriter, and founder of Lorraine House - which serves to empower women through art, activism, and philanthropy, and is named for celebrated, Chicago born Lorraine Hansberry, of Raisin in the Sun fame.
The next in our series of game changers is Reni Eddo-Lodge, a British writer and activist who, through addressing disinterest in dissecting privilege and the tendency to jump to anger and self-defense, despite the absence of anything to defend oneself from, has been able to start several conversations on the sort of gaslighting black people experience when relaying aggressions (micro as well as macro) to people who will never experience them.
Black women have always been not only changing - but in some cases creating the game. Tomi Adeyemi, a Nigerian American novelist who you may know for her novel, Children of Blood and Bone. She is the first change-maker we are introducing you to in our 5-part series in celebration of Women's History Month.
