PAMELA THOMPSON

Pamela Thompson is a writer, artisan and activist. Inspired by the work of Zora Neale Hurston, Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and Alice Walker, she believes that because the experience of being a Black girl, as well as that of being a Black woman, is so dynamic, nuanced and rich, the full story of Black girlhood and Black womanhood will never be known until all Black girls and women feel empowered and equipped to share their stories, their way. Her activism starts at home where she is the proud mother of four of the future’s brightest and most brilliant Black girls; Izzie, Ava, Elle and Lydia. Devoted to their development, she spends her days homeschooling the girls, using her degrees in English (BA) and Education (M.Ed.) to facilitate her ability to educate her girls well. Pamela is a creative at heart and happily designs for her own brand, Peiea Grace, in the fringe hours of her robust life of raising her girls and loving her husband of 14 years, Emmanuel Thompson.
