About Info

Artist Name
Lady Munira
Artist Statement

My artist statement is a breathing document: one that is boastful when it can be, though reclusive and uncertain by nature. It is reflective of persistent attempts to make sense of a senseless human experience, an experience that often left me too paltry to persist. However, since the pestilence of an awakened psyche is an artist’s most faithful friend and foe, I did. Every word written provides a peek into all that this Black woman is, and I’ll continue to write so that we can all find out who she will become.

Resume

Statement
My life’s work is to rekindle the love for knowledge, community, and culture to promote success through strategic education. With particular regard for the inner-city black community, my work aims to abate generational ailments and suture the broken families and psyches that have developed from them.
