6 African American Women Making Their Way As Social Entrepreneurs

- By

While at Princeton, Angela Coleman saw firsthand, through mentorship, that young women of color in poverty, lacked even the most basic critical thinking skills. Changing that soon became her focus. She took it upon herself to engage many young women in the community, to expose them to different stimuli, from theater to books, forming the Sisterhood Agenda.

Using her experience working with young women, Ms. Coleman developed a series of camps, classes and follow-up programs to help educate tomorrow’s leaders. Her efforts have been recognized by Ashoka Innovators for the Public which selected Ms. Coleman as one of their Fellows.
