Shay Stewart-Bouley

Founder, Black Girl in Maine; Executive Director, Community Change Inc

In the early-2000s, Shay Stewart-Bouley moved from her native Chicago to Maine and, as a Black woman living in one of the least diverse spaces in the United States, found herself writing regularly about race relations,social justice, and white supremacy. Shay is a prolific blogger at her award-winning blog Black Girl in Maine, where race is a major theme but when she is not blogging she earns her daily bread as the Executive Director of Community Change Inc, a civil rights organization in Boston, MA that has been educating and organizing for racial equity since 1968.
