Kate Clifford Larson

Kate Clifford Larson is a bestselling author of critically acclaimed and award winning biographies including: Walk With Me: A Biography of Fannie Lou Hamer, which tells the remarkable story of one of America's most important civil rights leaders of the 20th century; Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter; and Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero. A specialist in 19th and 20th century U.S. Women’s and African American History, Larson is also an award-winning consultant whose work includes feature film scripts – most recently Focus Features’ Harriet starring Cynthia Erivo - documentaries, museum exhibits, and public history initiatives including three Harriet Tubman state and national historical parks, and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway and All-American Road. She is frequently interviewed for national and international radio programs and media outlets and has appeared on national and international television broadcasts including BBC, PBS, and C-Span, cable networks, CBS Sunday Morning, and WGBH. Larson is currently a Brandeis Women’s Studies Research Center Visiting Scholar. With two degrees from Simmons University, an MBA from Northeastern University, and a Doctorate in American History from the University of New Hampshire, Larson has nurtured a passion for researching and writing about American women's lives. She relishes the challenges of teasing out life stories from voices that have long been silenced. "I feel strongly that we must reconnect with the women who helped build and shape this country," Larson recently wrote, "and by putting women at the center of the story, the world looks very different - more complex, interesting, and vibrant."
