Veronica Chambers is the author of the acclaimed memoir Mama’s Girl, a “troubling testament to grit and mother love” (New Yorker). She is also the co-author of the bestsellers Yes, Chef with Marcus Samuelsson and Everybody’s Got Something with Robin Roberts, and created The Meaning of Michelle, an anthologized look at the legacy of the former First Lady. Currently a JSK Knight fellow at Stanford University, Chambers is the editor of Past Tense, the New York Times archival storytelling initiative devoted to publishing articles based on photographs recently rediscovered from its archives. Combining biography and portraiture, Finish the Fight! profiles some of the fierce but forgotten heroines of American women’s suffrage.
