Many thanks to Levi Hildebrand, Fish in a Birdcage, Trevor McDiarmid, and Leah Tidey, for making this video happen.
This video was created for the Disobedient Women Art Exhibition.
I put out an open call to all those who self-identified as Disobedient Women and asked them what it was that made them disobedient.
This was their answer. The poem in this video was created directly from their answers. These words belong to them.
I recorded the women being wholly and unapologetically themselves, and just like that, their Disobedience became art.
I thank every person involved in the making of this video, and and cannot wait to make more!
THE OREO COMPLEX
I did this Tedx Talk when I was 19 years old!
On the Oreo Complex and loving my blackness.
