Angela Davis once said, "I decided to teach because I think that any person who studies philosophy has to be involved actively." Similarly, I decided to write because I believe writing is one of the best ways for one actively engaged in the world around them to educate others. In this same vein, my hope in everything I write is for people to walk away from the words on the pages having learned something.
I am an Atlanta based writer, editor, artist, and published author of 'Grayish-Black: poetry from the ribs.' My work focuses on exploring the space where the socio-political meets the personal; the small place where race, class, sexuality, and art combine to create grand conversations on the ways in which systems of domination affect our every day lives; the often poetic and sometimes sobering realities of life as a Black, queer, Muslim navigating a world much too small for itself.
