Andrea Williams is the New York Times bestselling author of We Are Family, written in collaboration with NBA icon LeBron James, and Baseball's Leading Lady: Effa Manley and the Rise and Fall of the Negro Leagues. As a journalist and essayist, her work has been published in the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, New York Magazine, Mother Jones, and other publications. Her writing has established her as a leading voice on the intersections of race, gender, and sports/entertainment; as a result, she's been asked to share her perspective on numerous platforms, including NPR's All Things Considered and Here and Now, Nightline, CBS This Morning, and others. In April 2022, Andrea made her film debut in For Love and Country, an Amazon Music original film about the experiences of Black artists in country music, for which she also served as writer and producer. Before turning to writing full-time, Andrea worked in marketing and development for the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. She also served as the Partnerships Director for Dr. Axe/Ancient Nutrition and has advised numerous corporate and individual clients in the areas of marketing, PR, and overall digital strategy.
