Curating at Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Hi friends and readers --

I have been away from Detroit for nearly 3 months as I am currently the Paul Nicholson Arts Management Fellow at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

I am learning a lot that I can't wait to bring home to the company I founded 5 summer seasons ago, Shakespeare in Detroit. In the meantime, I am enjoying and relishing all that the groundbreaking, aspirational OSF has to offer. I was even able to co-curate the annual Juneteenth celebration here at the festival with three other incredible women, Nemuna Cessay, Roberta Inscho-Cox and JaMeeka Hollway-Burrell.



Check out a little video from the local TV station where I got to speak with KTVL about the celebration of Black Joy -- For Us By Us:

My OpEd in the Detroit Free Press

Hi guys --

It's been a while.

As you know, I live my life immersed in Shakespeare. BUT, I will try to do better posting in 2017.

In the meantime, I wrote an OpEd in the Detroit Free Press a couple of weeks ago. It was printed in the Sunday paper on 12/18/16.

If you want to check it out -- and gosh, I hope you do -- you can read it here .


Thanks for your love + support, as always!
