original fundraiser text
I am determined to use this life to support as many beings possible in seeing their light and spreading it. I make music and poetry intended to uplift those of us who have been pushed aside, put down and used for generations. Those of us who have been denied our beauty and power that magic that is our birthright. Art intended to confront, heal and motivate. To encourage dreams, spark conversations and foster solutions to global injustices.
Despite having amassed countless accolades and awards/recognition at such a young age, I carry many deeply embedded stories that tell me I'm not good enough or that I don't have the right to spread this message. That I don't deserve the attention. That I'm waisting peoples time. But I know, now more than ever, if I don't put myself out there with the same audacity of a Drake or a Meg, I am playing it small, knowing I have the drive and vision to do what it takes to shake this whole thing up! Right Now!
I have a mission I MUST carry out, a beautiful vision of a new era and as I am beginning to heal the shadow parts of me that believe I am not worthy, I am building up my team, facilities and skills. I know I need support in actualizing this vision and taking it worldwide.
My main vehicles for this work are: my solo art project "Amani O+" dedicated to meditative lyricism and rebel music for the heart & soul. Rap duo (w/ my bestie Kat SoPoetic) "KATANI" a misogyNAH (anti racism and misogyny) music project, committed to shifting the mainstream culture to one that protects and values all women, all femmes and queer folks cuz the alternative has been going on for too long and is ready to be interrupted."Stardust Edutainment LLC" home to all my community arts & education initiatives and "Get Free" a meditation community committed to spiritual healing for QTBIPOC.
I have gotten endless nudges that the right time is now to leap all the way into this path. Give it all that I've got. My favorite rapper Mumu Fresh sings "Your miracle is waiting on you. It won't come until you're ready...what you gonna do?"
For me getting ready means:
COVID-19 completely interrupted my typical source of income (anti-oppression and food justice education) and has motivated me to jump all the way into all of my gifts the fullness of my purpose. I am a raptivist and radical community educator. I believe in the power of this work to change the globe. This is me putting the things in place to build sustainable community healing projects of my heart and intuition. Villages rooted in unity, the courage to dream and an active radical love.
“Justice is what love looks like in public.” Cornel West
