DC’s own, Lois Cooper, is passing down her family’s words of wisdom in her book, “Momma Said”.  Her book features the foundational words of strength that were taught from her now, 102, year old mother, Catherine Cooper.  Lois decided to publish the fundamental words of wisdom to share it with others.  “Momma Said” inspires and motivates the sharing of one’s heritage and familial ties with love.  Her mother’s guidance was key in her upbringing and now her teaching are available for everyone.

“Momma Said” also serves as a guided journal with available workspace for reflection.  The readers can enjoy the words of wisdom while also reflecting it back to their own experience and life.  Lois is also a local creative in the DC community.  She is striving to make equal opportunities in publishing for women everywhere.  Lois has a strong passion for history and grassroots organizing.
