Tamara Winfrey-Harris is a nationally renowned columnist and speaker. Her work focuses on the fraught intersection of race and sex. In 2015, Winfrey-Harris published The Sisters Are Alright: Changing the Broken Narrative of Black Women in America. This popular essay anthology “exposes anti- Black-woman propaganda all around us, and shows the truth of what it’s like to be a Black woman in America” (Blavity). A revised and expanded second edition of The Sisters Alright hits shelves on October 12, 2021. Earlier this year, Winfrey-Harris also released Dear Black Girl: Letters From Your Sisters on Stepping Into Your Power. An outgrowth of her grassroots “Letters to Black Girls Project,” first launched in 2017, the book is a collection of empowering messages from Black women to the next generation. Covering a host of topics – from body positivity, to politics, to family relations – Dear Black Girls is intended to help Black girls navigate and thrive in a world that can so often be ugly and unforgiving.
