About the author

Since childhood, Dr. Adia McClellan Winfrey, also known as Dr. Dia, has been an advocate for social justice, which led to her receiving the honor of Olympic Torchbearer at age 16. A Doctor of Psychology, published author, and curriculum developer, she has been an advocate for emotional wellness and Hip Hop culture for over 20 years.

Dr. Dia earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Wilberforce University and Doctorate of Psychology degree from Wright State University School of Professional Psychology. Her doctoral dissertation, Healing Young People thru Empowerment (H.Y.P.E.) was the first to integrate Hip Hop culture and psychological theories, and was the foundation of her first book.

With the success of her first book H.Y.P.E. (African-American Images, 2009), Dr. Dia founded the company Elevating Us, and established The H.Y.P.E. Movement community outreach program, which have collectively served nearly 6,000 youth around the United States.

Dr. Dia has been featured in many publications and media outlets including The Tom Joyner Morning Show, MSNBC, NPR, JET Magazine, Refinary29, American Urban Radio Networks, PsychologyToday.com, Blackdoctor.org, The Association of Black Psychologists, and several local and online news sources.  Just three years after earning her doctorate degree, Dr. Dia was awarded the distinction of Outstanding Alumni of the Year for her advancements in the field of psychology. In 2015, Blackdoctor.org recognized her as a "Champion of Change."

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, and raised in neighboring Jeffersonville, Indiana, Dr. Dia’s family home is Talladega, Alabama. Throughout her childhood and during pivotal moments in her 20s, she spent weeks at a time with her grandparents, and other extended family in Talladega. 

Dr. Dia is the mother of four children, Donovan, Daymion, Ameerah, and Aidan, known as The Winfrey 4.

Update #3 - One Year Ago Today! June 5, 2019

Greetings!

Praying this message finds you well.

On this, the eve of my 40th Birthday, and 1 year anniversary of my Democratic Primary Election, I wanted to give a huge thanks to you for supporting the initial Running For My Future presale! 


My 30s were truly good to me and I feel so blessed to be entering a new chapter in my life. And because of your support, my memoir is part of this new chapter! It is my prayer that Running For My Future will inspire many and shape how we view politics in 2020 and beyond. 

I look forward to sharing updates with you as I move through the publishing process with Atmosphere Press. 

As always, thank you for the love and support!

Dr. Dia
