Community Voices Poets Speak – Aqueila M. Lewis-Ross
February 3 @ 5:00 PM PST
Award-winning and widely published poet, author, journalist, & artivist Aqueila M. Lewis-Ross uses poetry as a catalyst for healing. Her performative narrative pedagogy is centered around themes ranging from personal topics, religion, identity, women’s empowerment, and social justice.
In her decades-spanning practice, Aqueila has explored the power of sharing personal stories towards overcoming trauma. Using her poetry collection, Stop Hurting and Dance, and her performance art workshop, “From a Victim to a Thriving Survivor: Learning How to Revive the Soul”; she honors what it means to live with resilience, love and prosperity.
