Teodrose Fikre is a visionary author who is passionate about justice for all irrespective of our differences. Teodorse is named after and is the grandson five generations removed of Emperor Atse Teodrose II-the greatest king and visionary leader of Ethiopia. Teodrose writes of the hope possible in unity while addressing the very issues that lead to the scale of inequity that is pervasive in our society.
Born in Ethiopia the same year Emperor Haile Selassie was overthrown in 1974, Teodrose Fikre is a prolific writer whose speech idea was incorporated into Barack Obama's South Carolina primary victory speech in 2008. A lot has changed in the intervening years, a transformation caused by the most unlikely of circumstances which led to Teodrose's education of our common bonds and humanity's struggles without regard to the barriers that are erected to separate us.
Teodrose's pen is poignant, writing of love and loss, injustice and resilience. Most important, Teodrose's writing is a critique of our time and a much needed focus on the issues that divide us. Using moving testimony and historical narratives, Teodrose gives voice to the core of our collective struggle that often gets blurred by manufactured outrages and stoked grievances. A must read for those who hope to one day overcome injustice with a common purpose.
Serendipity's Trace is a collection of poetry and observations that express hope through struggle and traces the experiences that have shaped Teodrose's past and present. Powerful, emotion, and raw in its eloquence, Teodrose's writing is one that speaks to our collective conscience.
