Angela Bowden

Angela Bowden is an African Nova Scotian poet, author, TEDx speaker, writer, and activist. A descendent of the stolen Africans sold through the transatlantic slave trade, her roots were preserved through the Black Loyalists? arrival in Birchtown and subsequent migrations to Guysborough County and New Glasgow, where she was born and raised. Her ongoing work and published book of poetry, UnSpoken Truth: unmuted and unfiltered, highlights, documents, and challenges systemic and overt racism entrenched in Nova Scotia. A strong advocate of self-care, she encourages self-love, self-empowerment, deep healing, and change. Angela writes in many genres; Black Girl, Black Girl is her first children?s book.
