From her early childhood spent in Ghana to her experiences as a black woman forging a career in the media - where she was often the only black person, or woman, in the room - June opens the door to her world and paints a poignant picture of what has helped shape her into who she is today.The Only One in the Room is a passionate story about breaking down barriers and advocating for equality in all areas of life, and one that will empower others to do the same.
