Malaak Compton-Rock, wife of comedian Chris Rock, is the Founder and Director of the AngelRockProject, the foundation which sponsored the book event.


Marian Wright Edelman is the first African-American woman to have been admitted to the Mississippi Bar; she is also the founder and president of the Children’s Defense Fund. In 1973, Edelman started the Children’s Defense Fund, which strives to fight childhood poverty, neglect and abuse, and tries to ensure access to health care, quality education and a moral and spiritual foundation for children.Source
