‘And Then She Persisted’ By Kenisha Coon

And Then She Persisted, Is the story of overcoming generation trauma, abuse, and neglect. It is the story of standing up against racism. It’s a story of advocacy, passion, alliship, and surrendering to stepping into one’s purpose.

I am a Biracial, activist, speaker, DEIB consultant, child welfare expert, and ally.

This book started as many blog journals, schooling, training, therapy, light night talks with my friends, channeling into my spirituality, and a plethora of other methods to work through compartmentalizing though the childhood trauma I endured, and finding myself on my journey to being Antiracst.

Although I did not know at the time, childhood trauma, and systemic racism that our county is built upon, really conditioned me to be a person that I had to persist against.

Throughout the memoir, I walk through my childhood and all of the trauma, abuse, and neglect that I endured from my birth until moving out of my home. It covers the importance of relationships in my life. It covers finding myself as a biracial woman, who was raised in a white home with no access to my black family, struggling with my identity and finding a springboard of support to really put my all into my journey of identity development and Antiracism education.
