September 24, 2018: She’s a super (control) freak

GUEST HOST  -  CLARKISHA KENT (@IWriteAllDay_ ) Clarkisha Kent is a Nigerian-American writer, culture critic, columnist, and up and coming author. Committed to telling unique and inclusive stories from nigh-infancy, she is fascinated with using storytelling not as a way to “overcome” or “transcend” her unique identities (as a queer Black African woman), but as a way to explore them, celebrate them, affirm them, and most importantly, normalize them and make the world safe enough for people who share them to exist.

As a University of Chicago graduate with a B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies and English, she brings with her over five years of pop culture analysis experience, four years of film theory training, and a healthy appetite for change.

Her writing has been featured in outlets like The Root, Into, BET, Equality for HER, The Establishment, HuffPost, Wear Your Voice Magazine, and Essence. She is also the creator of #TheKentTest, a media litmus test designed to evaluate the quality of representation that exists for women of color in film and other media.

Currently, Kent is working on finishing a novel about a Black female outlaw and a TV comedy pilot about an immortal familiar.
