#Martinique native, "Empress" Josephine was married to Napoleon Bonaparte. Slavery was abolished in Martinique in 1789 but Josephine encouraged her husband to reinstate it around 1804 (in order to benefit her family's failing plantation). Years later, protesters beheaded her statue and splattered it with red paint. It still stands today in the capital headless and bloodied. #MyKindaProtest#Artists4Change#AntiImperialism#RebelSpirit
Grateful to be part of a great convening of artist and minds for one common cause of art + activism. #artists4change @natblacktheatre @651ARTS @jaamilkosoko @nicowheadon @hiartsnyc @billieholidaytheatre
Reflecting on a year being back in NY - I am forever and always grateful to my family and old friends (like family) who constantly amaze me with their generosity, honesty, humor and compassion. Thank You. I would also like to say how grateful I am for the new friends and artist/activist communities I've had the pleasure of working with and getting to know. Pictured - the hard working (and ever growing) team of #Artists4Change at a recent phone bank. Thank You. #peoplehavethepower#NYCLove#home

A powerful evening of personal narratives and brilliantly written and performed testaments informed by black male encounters with police. Glad to represent #artists4change and to support this producer's upcoming collaboration in February with the National Black Theatre. #thenewblackfest#ustheatre#createart#handsup
