So thrilled to have been on this podcast with Sarah Lidwell-Durnin—whose class last year really helped me figure out how to build a planner business! I owe her so much and we had a great time building this podcast episode!
Rozella (Rozie) Kennedy is the Founder and owner of Brave Sis Project, which she describes as a “message and a movement of wellness and intercultural sxsterhood.” Through publications, events, and lifestyle brand assets, Brave Sis uplifts impactful Women of Color in history across ethnicities as a way of fostering awareness, celebration, and creativity. In 2021 she launched the Brave Sis Journey-Journal, part planner, part history book, part journal, and also part coloring book.
This unique book highlights Black and other American Women of Color in history, notably the lesser-known she-roes, whose stories will energize and inspire users of all ages. Centering Black and other Women of Color but welcoming all, this is a lovingly created, colorful, and inspirational planner/journal with quotes, prompts, coloring pages, and commemorations to get womxn across cultures in a reflective, energized, and creative mood month after month through the year to come. There are portraits and prompts featuring 80 Black, Latinx, Native and Indigenous, and Asian-American foremothers—it’s an incredible labor of love. In this wide-ranging conversation, Rozella discusses the journey she took herself to bring this book to life - and what 2022 holds!
