Shaunda Fowler


Shaunda Fowler was born and raised in Compton, California and spent a significant portion of her life with her maternal grandparents in the Imperial Courts Projects (PJs) in Watts. Growing up in the inner-city, she learned that being womanish was a way of survival. It is her hope that girls/women of color will be brave enough to have courageous conversations about being womanish in order to heal old wounds and find joy. Dr. Fowler is a middle school principal in a small mid-western school district where many of the girls of color can be considered womanish.
