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.
“Stereotypes about Black Women and White Women RIP (Radically Imagined Perspective)!”

Amoke Kubat – writer and performance artist
Amoke Kubat is an emerging writer and performance artist, and a recipient of a 2015 Cultural Community Partnership Award from the Minnesota State Arts Board, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
She collaborated with Jennifer Johnson and Nicole M Smith to present this work that addresses the twin burdens of “angry black woman” and “well intentioned white girl.”
