Each month, these 15-minute guided conversations on WACO's Instagram Live, celebrate Black artists and their work. This week, we are being joined by @blackgirlinlove, a “bad-ass Jamaican-British-Canadian, truth-teller, award-winning writer, and wellness expert. She’s the girl to call when you want to turn your inner shame into success!”
She is a former writer for OWN, Lionsgate, The Comedy Network, The Women’s Television Network, and Global Television. She is also a contributing writer for Huffington Post and the Toronto Star, Canada’s largest daily newspaper. Her popular new book, Black Girl in Love (with Herself) has been published by Hay House, the largest self-help publisher in North America.
Her award-winning play, Da Kink in My Hair, received four NAACP awards including Best New Playwright. Da Kink has broken box office sales records in Canada, England, and the United States. It has grossed millions, been critically acclaimed, and was named one of the top ten plays in Canada’s theatrical history.
