At BAM, we believe stories move the world. We also believe that the most impactful stories are diverse ones.
That's why we're excited to announce our third BAM Book Jam, an interactive book club series featuring conversations with diverse and innovative authors. In the next Book Jam, we're featuring "We're Speaking," a book written by Hitha Palepu.
"Authoritative and authentic" (Elizabeth Holmes), We're Speaking provides inspirational lessons about life, work, and overcoming adversity--drawn from Kamala Harris's norm-shattering ascent to Vice President of the United States.
Kamala Harris is one of our country's most awe-inspiring political figures, dawning on a new age as the first--but not last--Black and Asian-American female Vice President. Having spent her entire career smashing glass ceilings and influencing the next generation of young women, Harris has completely redefined what it means to be a woman in politics.
