For over 10 years, nationally recognized performance artist, Lady Caress has dedicated her life to the art of communication as both a poet and public speaker.  With a Master of Fine Arts in Performance from Arizona State University, she has designed and executed public speaking and performance workshops across the country. Featured on PBS and NPR, Lady Caress  crafts her message of empowerment, social justice and cultural awareness through compelling live performances and video.  She has toured over 150 colleges and universities with her solo show and was awarded the 2017 Campus Activities Spoken Word Artist of the Year. Her unique set of comedy, music, beatboxing and theatrics has led to commissioned work for the National Multicultural Women’s Conference, The Blaque Resource Network, YMCA and several other national youth programming organizations. Seen on BET at the 365 Black Awards and Season 4 of Verses and Flow on TvOne, Lady Caress is truly a dynamic performer.
