The sixth in a series of Artist Spotlights brought to you by Lady Fest Upstate!
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT #6: AMANI OLUGBALA
A radical of the heart and pacifist of the mind, Amani spends much of her time contemplating the degrees of difference between humans, other animals and non-living things. Committed to changing the world through both overt and subversive techniques she is a writer, educator and community organizer who uses the tools of artistic expression and social awareness to impact change and foster a sense of empathy and inter-being in local urban communities. A recent addition to Albany’s slam poetry scene, Amani is enthusiastic about raising her voice and using the power of art to spark major social change in the Capital Region and the larger world.
