I’m Shannon Yvonne Moreau and I’m a writer and blogger on the topics of Black history, pop culture, and personal stories. My first published historical articles, about the pioneering Black female journalist and anti-lynching activist Ida B. Wells, appeared in Cricket and American History magazines. I’ve served as both president and secretary of the local chapter of a national writers organization. In 2020, I helped launch the New Mexico Black Leadership Council’s EQ Online and am the contributing editor.
Besides writing, I love reading (of course!), going to movies, marathoning TV shows, and dancing.
I grew up in Washington State, where it rains a lot. I now live in New Mexico, where it rains really hard for five minutes and then the sun comes back out.
I never get tired of the sun.
