From Amoke Kubat:

Nicole M. Smith and I were fellows in Intermedia Arts’ Creative Community Leadership Institute (CCLI) the 2010-2011. I was still a Special Education teacher, burning out and wondering if I’d ever get to doing my art: writing. I struggled with and expressed even seeing myself as an artist. Nicole reminded me that I had said this, ” I don’t know about being an artist but as I enter this last leg of my life, I’m gonna tear some s**t up!” Oh, be careful what you say!! I am on a crusade to dismantle MINNESOTA NICE”. I am advocating for being real and truth telling – none of us are FREE.
