Ijeoma is based in Seattle, and she is the author of the New York Times Best-Seller, So You Want to Talk about Race, published by Seal Press. She was Named one of The Root’s 100 Most Influential African Americans in 2017, one of the Most Influential People in Seattle by Seattle Magazine, one of the 50 Most Influential Women in Seattle by Seattle Met. Ijeoma is the winner of the of the 2018 Feminist Humanist Award by the American Humanist Society. If you’re not familiar with her works, she focuses on issues of race and identity, feminism, social and mental health, social justice, and the arts. Her writing has been featured in The Washington Post, NBC News, Elle Magazine, TIME, The Stranger, and the Guardian, among other outlets. In today’s episode, we cover life with ADD and the difficulties with focusing. We talk about her greatest achievement to date, and I think you’ll find it both beautiful and refreshing.
