Sharon Clark Chang grew up in Richmond, Virginia, longing not only to see the world, but to see it become a more tolerant and loving place. She followed an intelligence career with work in advocacy and with minority businesspeople.
Having returned to Virginia after years spent in other cities and countries, she keeps house for a pair of rescued terriers and brings smiles to the faces of fellow motorists with her license plate, “INCRGBL.”
Escaped Alone, her memoir of those early Richmond years that inspired her search for racial, religious, and other forms of nondiscrimination, was published in 2013 and is available from Tate Publishing. Signed copies are available here.
