Writer Kris Lindsey is hopelessly curious and usually hungry. Following a thirty-year career in philanthropy, politics, and higher education, she switched gears to put her energy, time, and love into words. Her writing explores the intersections of identity, race, history, and place. She is at work on a book honoring 18 generations of Black resistance in America and assorted essays interrogating her personal ghosts. She is excited to share her first published essay in Cutleaf and has forthcoming work in The Audacity in Fall 2023. More info and words at www.kriswritenow.com.
