“My PhD was about using yoga as a tool for critical literacy development and my experience with a Yoga, Literature & Art Camp that I created at Spelman College, my undergraduate school. I worked with teen girls, all self-identified as black or African-American, but they came from charter schools, private schools, and Title 1 schools, so from a wide range of backgrounds. The goal of camp, which is June 15-25 this year, is to encourage the girls to think critically about the world in which they engage. We read poems from women of color and have volunteer yoga instructors teach to the poetry theme, then the girls have the chance to create their own poems and talk about their own experiences.”
