TaRessa Stovall was born a Jazz Baby in Seattle, Washington when her parents’ marriage was illegal in 16 states. An author from the age of seven, TaRessa has written several poems, books, and plays on various topics, including racial identity and the impact of colorism on People of Color. Check out her sizzling new memoir, SWIRL GIRL: Coming of Race in the USA on taressastovall.com. Connect with her on Twitter and Instagram @taressatalks.
SWIRL GIRL: Coming of Race in the USA reveals the raw truths about how a hard-headed, Mixed-race, “Black Power Flower Child” battles society—and sometimes her closest loved ones—to forger her identity on her own terms.
