Hand drawn art created through the spirit of SOUL

PhD, Activist, Educator, Spoken Word Poet and Sista: Jamie Lyiscott


It all started when Spoken word artist Jamila Lyiscott was complimented on being articulate, and decided to reject the acclamation.
This tri-lingual-ist is a powerhouse, exploring the challenges of being “articulate” in a society that misjudges the use of language. She brings IT!…with full force, passion and emotion, the hypocrisy of a society’s acceptance, and the pride she exudes in using language to express her self-identity. Check out her Spoken Word performance from Ted Talk here, titled: 3 Ways to Speak English…..it’s Slammin’!!! This inspiring Sista speaks her truth
If you’ve been spirited by her and you want more, follow her on Twitter and her website
