We at NAPD are thrilled that Nkechi Tafia accepted our invitation to be the opening speaker for the conference. She is back by popular demand, having mesmerized, energized and inspired the attendees at the NAPD Women’s Conference. Her memoir - Black Power, Black Lawyer: My Audacious Quest for Justice (2020) was published a few months ago. The book has been described as “an engaging memoir of not just a fascinating woman, but a history of a movement.” She will share lessons learned that helped her to remain steadfast in the fight against racism, injustice, and her experience in being a transformational activist in the justice reform movement.
