Amani-Nzinga Jabbar

Amani-Nzinga Jabbar is a professor of English, author, runner, health coach, wife,  and mother of 3. She started her running journey by walking when she was pregnant with her youngest child. At the time, she was undergoing the stress of detaching herself from an emotionally abusive marriage. The walking provided mental and physical benefits that were beyond what she expected. Since that time, she has run several 5ks, half marathons, and most recently made her marathon dreams come true.

Amani’s latest book, I Bear Witness, tells the story of a young woman who emerges stronger after facing challenges in her life.
