Sister Souljah Book: The Biography of Sister Souljah


University Press returns with another short and captivating biography of one of history's most compelling figures, Sister Souljah.

Sister Souljah is one of the most influential American activists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Her clash in 1992 with then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton led to what is now known in politics as a "Sister Souljah moment," and her blistering critiques of racial injustice have permeated her eyebrow-raising works as a recording artist, film producer, and best-selling author.

Born in the Bronx, New York in 1964, Lisa Williamson grew up in poverty, became a voracious reader, bewailed America's Eurocentric history curriculums, won the American Legion's Constitutional Oratory Contest, received a scholarship to attend Cornell University's Advanced Summer Program, attended Rutgers University, travelled extensively through Europe and Africa, helped to organize successful divestment campaigns targeting apartheid-era South Africa, adopted the stage name Sister Souljah, joined the famous hip-hop group Public Enemy, made an infamously controversial statement about the 1992 Los Angeles riots, became a renowned writer, and has settled into a relatively quiet life with her husband and son.

This short book tells the intensely human story of a woman who is changing the world in a way that no one else can.
