Luvvie Ajayi: I'm Judging You: The Do-Better Manual
September 25, 2016
A thirteen-year blogging veteran, she is the voice behind Awesomely Luvvie, a respected entertainment and humor blog that covers everything pop culture – from TV, movies and technology to travel, race and life’s random adventures. Her first book, titled, I’M JUDGING YOU: The Do Better Manual, will be released in September 2016 by Henry Holt and Company.
Luvvie is passionate about social justice and is equally addicted to shoes. She combined these loves in 2009 when she, along with Karyn Brianne Lee, founded The Red Pump Project. Red Pump is a nonprofit that raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. Their work has earned them a Congressional Record from the U.S. House of Representatives and Resolutions by the Illinois State Senate as well as the City Council of Chicago.
Her latest site, Awesomely Techie (launched April 2014), is a resource for writers, bloggers, entrepreneurs, small business owners and everyday people who want to use technology to make their work and personal lives more efficient. Luvvie is a contributing editor and columnist for TheGrio, writes Scandal recaps for Vulture, and has written for XOJane, Essence, EBONY, Huffington Post, Clutch Magazine and Uptown Magazine. She has been featured by the Chicago Sun-Times, Africa.com, Essence, AOL.com, Black Enterprise, The Root, BET and more.
