Virtual Fall Conference & Business Meeting
Friday, October 16, 2020, 9:30 AM to 12 Noon
TEDx Speaker, Executive Director of Community Change, Inc.,
and author of the blog, "Black Girl in Maine"
Born and raised on a combination of big city attitude and Midwestern sensibility in Chicago, Shay Stewart-Bouley, also known from her blog "Black Girl in Maine", had to learn a bit of Yankee ingenuity when she relocated to Maine in 2002. She was able to continue the socially conscious work she had embarked on in the Windy City, where she worked primarily with homeless people, by running a community center focused on low-income youth in Southern Maine and writing about social issues (racism, class and socio-economics in particular) on her blog, and in various Maine publications, as well as appearing in some anthologies. In 2011, she won a New England Press Association Award for her writing on race and diversity for the Portland Phoenix. Although she stills resides in Maine, she is currently Executive Director of Community Change Inc. in Boston, one of the nation’s longest running anti-racism organizations.
