Finding Self-Worth And Empowerment In African-American History
Please join the Women in Law Section on Thursday, February 10, 2022, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm Eastern Time for a virtual book club meeting titled “Finding Self-Worth and Empowerment in African-American History.” In celebration of Black History Month, February’s featured book is Deidra Moore-Janvier’s From Me, To You: The Power of Storytelling and Its Inherent Generational Wealth!. This fascinating work is a multi-generational tabletop book focusing on multiple aspects of African American history, and by extension, American history. It explores the social impact and economic legacy of the once central American institution of slavery from the lens of enslaved Africans and their descendants, through accessible storytelling. The book is available in hardbound copy at MASCOTBOOKS.COM and via this link.
We are very excited to have the book’s author, Deidra Moore-Janvier, join the meeting to discuss her book and answer questions from the attendees. In 1996, as a single mother, and after nine years of employment with a Manhattan company, TIAA-CREF, Deidra Moore quit her job as a commercial real estate paralegal to attend law school. After graduating CUNY School of Law at Queens College, Deidra worked as a Public Defender with The Legal Aid Society in Bronx County. Nearly five years later, Deidra left the Legal Aid Society to establish her own firm, the Law Offices of Deidra R. Moore, P.C. Deidra advises and litigates on all aspects of matrimonial law, guardianship matters, trusts and estates law, elder law, and wrongful death cases.
