A Conversation with Bestselling Author Jacquie Abram, Q &A, Reception & Community Employment Resources.
International best-selling and award-winning author of Hush Money: How One Woman Proved Systemic Racism in her Workplace and Kept her Job, Jacquie Abram, will participate in two local community events, including a presentation and discussion at a free community-wide event on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the downtown Central Library Auditorium.
Abram earned the ranking of Amazon #1 Best Seller and is a recipient of the Readers Favorite gold medal for social issues novels. She is a sought-after keynote speaker who has been featured in Forbes, top digital media sites, and across social media platforms.
Prior to Abram's vocation as an author, and DEI and anti-racism consultant, she held an accomplished career in higher education. However, this tenure in a profession she loved was systemically stained by discrimination in the forms of covert and overt racism. Abram's first-hand experience as a Black woman navigating racism in corporate America led to the publication of Hush Money, a book inspired by true events and co-authored by her daughters. Abram began this journey as a self-published author selling books from the trunk of her car at parks and pop-up shops. Today, Hush Money is read in numerous countries around the world and has become an invaluable resource to anti-racism activists, allies, students, and employees and employers across the workforce.
