This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), we continue our profiles of outstanding women in our community as part of Women's History Month observances. I reached out to author TaRessa Stovall. TaRessa's book Swirl Girl: Coming of Race In The USA. Her memoir chronicles her life as a mixed-race child of a Jewish mother and Black father growing up in Seattle, Washington.
Stovall is an author, educator, and public relations specialist. She chronicles her experiences of not being "Black" enough or "White" enough as soon as she leaves her home.
