Stacy Abrams

Stacey Yvonne Abrams is an American politician, lawyer, voting rights activist, and author of the book “Our Time Is Now.” Our Time is Now is more than a comprehensive chronicle of voter suppression. It is more than a comprehensive exposé of voter suppression. It is a book of clarity. It is a book of inspiration. It is a book of empowerment. Abrams points the way forward to American democracy.

In the tradition of Notorious RBG, a lively, beautifully designed, full-color illustrated celebration of the life, wisdom, wit, legacy, and fearless style of iconic American Congresswoman Maxine Waters.

“See, you don’t have to think about doing the right thing. If you’re for the right thing, then you do it without thinking.” – Chapter 36

I’m on a different path this year with my writings and my art. My new ideas were already peculating inside me but Amanda Gorman’s poem at the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris turn the flame up.

Happy Writing!

I am a writer. I started writing in my teens. I recently became serious with my craft after participating in a free 7-Day Book Writing Challenge provided by Hay House. I now have a paid membership to Hay House Writing Community. I'm on my way to being a published author. I also enjoy mobile photography and golfing.
