On this episode of Black & Published, Nikesha speaks with Natasha Marin, curator of the Black Powerful anthology; the latest installment in her Black Imagination artist series. A conceptual artist whose people-centered projects have circled the globe, Natasha's focus is on amplifying, centering, and holding sacred space for a diverse sample of voices including LGBTQIA+ Black youth, incarcerated Black women, Black folks with disabilities, unsheltered Black folks, and Black children. She pays the bills by helping individuals and institutions achieve their antiracism goals through creative consulting (NONWHITEWORKS).
During our conversation, Natasha explains why even though she got an MFA, she didn’t think she had gone through enough trauma to call herself a writer. Plus the one subject she tackled with her writing that led to doxing and death threats, and what it means to believe in Black supremacy.
