Book signing – Sat 17th at Joplin Empire Market

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.
