 Dedicated to living her life as an individual without any regards for respectability politics, Cetarracca “Cicely Rue” Rockwell encourages everyone to do the same. Using her unique voice, experiences, and truth, she inspires people to be and do what they want without concern for the color of their skin or gender.

In her fight against respectability politics, she delights in writing fictional stories about the African American experience. She believes that before every revolution there is a spark in the arts that prompts the inevitable. She wants to inspire individuals to contribute to the decline of white supremacy by uplifting the black community in their own unique way.
