Aisha Raison has proven to be one of the strong, young Womanist poets, producers and speakers of our time. Creative and outspoken, her poetry will move you and create new food for thought for the mind, body and soul. Aisha has written and recorded poetry throughout the south since 1997, creating Afrodeesiack Press and working in radio in cities such as Winston-Salem and Memphis. With her feminist image and words, she won and toured several southern poetry slams and readings and performs in coffee shops and college stages, retelling stories that influence and inspire those that have yet to have a voice. She has recently published a book of poetry (Speaking in Cursive and Other Adventures of Little Girl Blue, Afrodeesiack Press/Createspace IPP, 2012) as well as essays (Heroine Tracks: Essays and Poetry by a Superwoman, Afrodeesiack Press/Createspace IPP, 2015) and has done two short documentaries, one of which was based on her experience at Southern Fried Poetry Slam (Southern Girl, Epifani 9 Productions, 2013). She is also a motivational speaker and domestic violence advocate who occasionally works with programs such as the YWCA of Greater Memphis as well as a midday on air personality at 88.5 WQOX-FM in Memphis.
