Hannah Drake is a blogger, activist, public speaker, poet and author. She writes commentary on politics, feminism and race. The Muhammad Ali Center named her a Daughter of Greatness, which features prominent women engaged in social philanthropy and activism. Hannah was selected as a “Best of the Best” in Louisville for her poem Spaces and recently was honored as a Kentucky Colonel, the highest honor bestowed by the Kentucky Governor recognizing an individual’s accomplishments and service. Hannah’s message is thought-provoking and at times challenging, but she believes change takes place in the uncomfortable spaces. “My sole purpose in writing and speaking is not that I entertain you. I am trying to shake a nation.”
