Ariana Brown is a queer Black Mexican American poet from San Antonio, TX with a B.A. in African Diaspora Studies & Mexican American Studies. Dubbed a “part time curandera” Ariana is the recipient of two Academy of American Poets Prizes and is a 2014 National Collegiate Poetry Slam champion. When she is not onstage she is probably eating an avocado, listening to Ozuna, or validating Black girl rage in all its miraculous forms.
In a time in which we are constantly being bombarded with the erasure and belittling of survivors, we hear from two unstoppable poetas who answer to another source of power: their inheritances of ancestral knowledge and magic.
