Bashawn LaSalle Brooks is a change agent who has fought countless times for equality within the workplace. Risking her own livelihood, she has fought for justice and fair-mindedness with her whole heart. Bashawn’s calling to the Kingdom of God and His work began at the young age of ten years old. By the power of the Holy Spirit who guided her through her many struggles, she now has a faith base that cannot be broken.
Bashawn Brooks stands firm on the word of the Lord; the Bible. Knowing her redeemer Jesus Christ lives, her goal is to express and manifest the power of God for the world to see the true love of God. Her activism goal is to inspire people across the globe and remind them that they matter! Matthew 19:26: Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
She was born in New Orleans, Louisiana to Charles and Terri LaSalle. She is married to an Active US Army (First Sergeant) Brooks, Sheadrich; together they have a beautiful daughter named Kimora Brooks. Bashawn lived most of her childhood on the Westbank (Jefferson Parish) of the city Gretna and Marrero, where her Lemieux & LaSalle family resided. She was Baptized at Greater St. John Baptist Church pastored by Rev. Harold Clark in Jean Lafitte Louisiana, where she also married in the year 2002.
Her activism and inspirational meetings played a pivotal role that has caused countless doors to be opened for people of color in banking. By demanding equal treatment, equal pay, counseling tactics, and much more from employers, her fight has earned her a position with her local Oklahoma State Conference NAACP as the Corporate/Foundation Liaison.
My New Book
Being Black In Banking And In America
I am excited to share and announce the launching of my newest book titled “Being Black In Banking And In America“. This book teaches you not to be anxious about anything because the battle has already been won. Your oppressors may prey upon you, hoping to instill fear within you; but one thing they may fail to realize is the strength found within those they aim to oppress. Your strength is within your sight and reach because God is the source of your strength and power! Your oppressors’ weapons are carnal; not fit for the long haul, and not knowing this battle is spiritual. Only the weak attack the strong. Those who oppress you are often afraid you will find your power! Order your copy today!
