Sacharja Cunningham '19 is from Brooklyn, New York. He loves writing, reading, and his passion for the humanities and social justice has motivated him to pursue an Africana Studies major with a double minor in Creative Writing and Education. Specifically, poetry became a primary means of storytelling and activism at the end of his sophomore year in high school and continues to serve those purposes today. He aspires to be a writer and educator since poetry has proved to be such a transformative saving grace in his life, and he would love to inspire other people to use poetry similarly.
Workshop led by Sacharja Cunningham '19 and Adja Dramé '16 of the Feminists of Color Collective. Other readers include Kyle Burnham, Terri Moise, Kareem Watson, Andres Aguilar, and Kaygon Finakin.
