Cole Brown

RAISED IN THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE, COLE BROWN IS A PHILLY KID AT HEART.

In between childhood summers spent between Ethiopia and the midwest, Cole matured in Philadelphia’s predominately white private schools and neighborhoods, an experience that delivered an awareness of race and class from a young age.

After graduating high school, Cole moved to Washington D.C. to attend Georgetown University as a finance major. Landmark events such as the death of Michael Brown and the election of Donald Trump caused Cole to rethink his original plans. Cole graduated from Georgetown with a major in Justice and Peace Studies and a passion for storytelling.

During his time at Georgetown, Cole was inspired to begin penning his first book, Greyboy: Finding Blackness in a White World.

Today, Cole lives between Sydney, Australia and New York. 

Greyboy is now available to purchase wherever books are sold.
