About Keisha-Gaye Anderson
Born in Jamaica and raised in New York, Keisha-Gaye Anderson has always been a storyteller. The poet has curated an evening of spoken word exploring themes of unity, self-determination, and community. The line-up of powerful artists – featuring Cheryl Boyce-Taylor, JP Howard, Ras Osagyefo and Keisha herself – will perform in FiveMyles, an exhibition and performance space where art and community connect. The gallery has been embraced by the Afro-Caribbean community in Crown Heights for presenting art rooted in non-Western cultures and being a welcoming space for impromptu and planned theatrical performances, evenings of poetry and music, concerts, and dance performances.
