April Ryan has been a White House correspondent since the Clinton era and can be seen almost daily on CNN as a political analyst, and is the Washington, D.C., bureau chief on TheGrio. She is one of only three African Americans in the White House Correspondents Association’s 100-years-plus history to serve on its board. Ryan is also the author of The Presidency in Black and White and At Mama’s Knee: Mothers and Race in Black and White. In her latest book, Black Women Will Save the World: An Anthem (Amistad), Ryan offers an inspiring and heart-tugging portrait of a momentous year when America elected its first Black woman vice president – and celebrates the tenacity, power, and impact of Black women across America. From the birth of this nation, Black women have transformed their pain into progress and have been at the frontlines of the country’s political, social, and economic struggles. These “Sheroes” as Ryan calls them, include current political leaders such as Maxine Waters, Valerie Jarrett, and Kamala Harris, other activists, and artists like Regina King. Combining profiles and in-depth interviews, Ryan explores the challenges Black women endure and how the lessons they’ve learned can help us shape our own stories.
