About Our Feature

Maisha Banks Manson is a Queer, gender non-conforming, Black identified artist, activist, teacher and writer. They have devoted their personal journey to self healing through reclamation of personal history, knowledge and empowerment as well as creating spaces for healing of others who are marginalized due to their race, gender, sexuality, religion, or economic status. Their creative work can be experience up and down the West Coast in open mics, theaters, stage but ultimately find home on the underside of napkins, or in the silence of an exhale.
