So thrilled to be performing at the kick of the @roxbury international film festival. . I will be sharing my choreopoem " African Made, American Grown" , a remix backed by musicians Jean and Romanes from the Haitian band Zepeng... Telling our stories of who we are is so important as human beings. This is very special to me as 16 years ago, I debuted as an Actress on film for the first time interestingly conceived from a class in theatre and story telling by Andrew Millington, an award winning Barbadian Director of the recent film " Zora's Dream". Come on down June 21, 2018 7-9:30pm at the Museum of Fine Art, Remis Auditorium! See you tbere! #storiesmatter

This man is my current muse....he reminds me of Nina Simone,, I love his poetic lyrics, the rawness emotions of his voice, unapologetic vulnerability and strength. What a gift! #artist #musicmatters
