Written Quincey uses his platform at TED X University of Tulsa edition to perform a powerful original saga detailing the intersection of two lives through art, trauma, labels of behavioral and mental health issues, suicide attempts, love, art, love art, Love, Art on into infinity.
Written preforms in his compelling signature style. He recreates, perfectly, the energy and intimacy of his Cypher 120 Experience in this dramatic reading.
This performance is an impactful departure from the usual TED X talk you need to see.
Casey McLerran is the Literary Editor at the Black Wall Street Times. She is a Sooner State transplant from Forest Hills, NY. McLerran arrived in Oklahoma at the age of three shortly after gentrification displaced her and her family out of their home in New York. At first glance, many think they have McLerran figured out. To be frank, she’s a biracial American young woman that unapologetically embraces her half-African identity — a feminist-womanist she is. Her pen operates as her voice as well as her sword. Her accolades include the 2018 Rural Oklahoma Poetry Museum’s Oklahoma Poem Award, a business management degree, and her three beautiful children. Her objective with the Black Wall Street Times is to elevate and amplify the literary art of modern black American culture, pay tribute to African-American literary trailblazers, all while simultaneously linking and introducing children to the world of colorful American writers.
