Wild Life

Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant

What a privilege it is to have Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant’s book on Get Lifted’s inaugural list! The moment we read this proposal, we knew her story was singular, and that she would serve as a wonderful, inspirational model of Black Excellence for so many. WILD LIFE is written with passion, honesty, and hope. A contribution like this is long overdue. ”

A memoir taking readers on a journey from the jungles of Madagascar to the grasslands of the Serengeti as she cares for lions, lemurs, and bears as one of the few Black, female scientists at the top of her field—all while offering her singular perspective on race, gender, class, marriage, love, and motherhood.
