I came across Stacey Patton randomly on Facebook. Someone shared something who shared something of hers and a new follower was born. Stacey is a powerful voice on issues that matter. A powerful voice unafraid of being heard above a whisper. Whether racial tension in America, providing alternatives to corporal punishment to black parents and families or sharing a recent giggle inducing post that made her smile you are bound to more enlightened (or pissed) and think harder about these issues once you read her take. Or perhaps you are brave enough to walk into her melanin sun of forever shade and try to go toe to toe with her on an issue. Her comebacks are classic. Epic even. You will come to live for them as much as you do the conversation. She will be your spirit animal, your BFF and the friend who will drive the car when you need to slash your exes tires. Well in your head anyway. And you won’t agree with everything she says. And that’s ok too. Oh! and she is dropping her next book in 2017. Find her at https://www.facebook.com/stacey.patton.9. She’s definitely a woman to watch.
