An activist & author, Latisha goes by the moniker, "Rebel Robb" as she's dedicated to improving the lives of disenfranchised Americans with a focus on women, children and minorities. "The Raw Onion" serves as an open-forum designed to 'peel back' the layers of concerns of minorities, particularly in the African American community. She's received the support of organizations such asInfluencer Coalition, who was instrumental in kicking off Black History Month with celebrities that call Atlanta home such as Usher, Killer Mike, and Jermaine Dupri supporting Black wealth by staging an 'open house' at Black-owned, Citizens Trust Bank.
She's led two successful protests against the Ben Hill Cleaners where African-Americans and their hard-earned dollars are being disrespected and secured coverage on several local media outlets because of those efforts. To learn more about 'The Raw Onion' please visit www.latisharobb.com
