Still from my video poem "Invocation for Jose Antonio Aponte"

Charisma at the Crossroads at Alice Young Arts Center at Drew University

I have been moving. So, I am just sharing photos from the production of my play CHARISMA AT THE CROSSROADS at the Alice Young Arts Center at Drew University, directed by Lisa Brenner with co-director Kimani Fowlin. Sitting in the audience and watching my writing come to life was one of my favorite experiences as an artist in 2018.The play will be published in an anthology of plays for BIPOC youth in 2021 on Bloomsbury. Loved working with youth artists from Newark, NJ for this!

Review of Visionary Aponte Exhibition in BOMB Magazine

My visual poem "Invocation for Jose Antonio Aponte: Lamina 26" was part of the Visionary Aponte exhibition at Little Haiti Cultural Center for Art Basel-Miami. Really enjoyed working with inde film-maker Toshi Sakai on this project. And I am simply honored to be in community with fierce visual artists I admire and respect while illuminating Aponte's urgently relevant history of resistance and power in Cuba. Our present time demands that we invoke this communal spirit as we move forward as diaspora. Big thanks to Tosha Grantham for pulling us together on the one. The exhibition is moving to NYU's King Juan Carlos Center on February 22nd. Check out the exhibition review in BOMB magazine ...
