According to an article in Elle, the book is not easily categorized. It is part autobiography, part scrapbook, part inspirational text, and part social justice toolkit—because, as Marley writes, “I’ve never liked being put into a category.” She defies them all.

Marley  is out on a book tour, with stops scheduled in New York, New Jersey, Philly and Chicago.  Dias also received the Trailblazer Award at the 2018 Trumpet Awards that were held in Atlanta earlier this month.  Her gift has taken her everywhere, even to the White House, where she spoke at the United State of Women Summit alongside Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
