Congresswoman Cori Bush is the first Black woman and first nurse to represent Missouri; the first woman to represent Missouri’s First Congressional District; and the first activist from the movement fighting for Black lives elected to Congress.
Cori Bush’s memoir, The Forerunner, is an inspiring personal account of her journey from nurse, pastor, and community organizer to the halls of Congress. She shares her story as a minimum wage worker, a survivor of domestic and sexual violence, and an unhoused parent. She hadn’t intended to run for political office, but her experiences on the front lines of the Ferguson Uprising changed her course.
