About the Author
Michael Platt is a teen baker, social entrepreneur, and food justice advocate. He has been baking since he was nine years old but has been interested in racial inequality since he first learned about the historic March on Washington at the age of six. Platt began to ask questions about people being mistreated because of the color of their skin, and so set up a baking business in Maryland, Michael's Desserts, with a one-for-one model. Platt appeared as one of the best kid bakers in the country in season 4 of Kids Baking Championship on the Food Network and has been covered by outlets such as the Capital Gazette, WUSA9 news, CBS, PGCTV news, TED Talks, Good Morning America, CNN, the Washington Post, People.com, Guideposts, the Rachael Ray Show, and more.
