Publisher Description

In Growing up Joplin, Kadesha Powell vividly brings to life her obstacles and triumphs while being raised in a predominantly white, Midwestern town. The constant struggle with racism and deep-rooted microaggression in the educational system, workforce, and her personal life, chipped away at her self-image. For far too long, she allowed others to shape her identity and limit available opportunities.

After moving to the East Coast and traveling internationally, Powell learned the meaning of acceptance and self-love. A range of cultural experiences allowed her to see the beauty of the world around her.

Growing up Joplin is the emotional journey of a feisty, energetic, and talented Black woman, who has bloomed into something much more than she ever dared to dream possible.
