She offers clear advice for staying mindful and finding our voice. Dr.Kemp grew up in foster care in the Bronx. A Stanford graduate with a PhD from Northwestern, she has over a decade of college teaching experience. Since her first antiapartheid march in 1983, she has advocated for racial justice and authentic community.
