Tayllor Johnson

TAYLLOR JOHNSON IS AN ARTIST, performer, and educator. A published poet, she has been writing and performing her own poetry and plays for over ten years. She is committed to using art to give voice to the world's unspoken needs and guides people to discover and speak their truth in order to find their own liberation. She received her Master’s in Humanities and Social Thought at NYU, which she will use to bring conscious performance poetry curriculum and programming into educational communities. 

Tayllor is also CEO of Sisterhood(verb), Inc., which started in 2014 as a hashtag #ImNotYourEnemy, a T-shirt, and a poem created in hopes to begin action-oriented conversations about women of color and how we could begin to look within to define sisterhood and live it as a truth, not a trend. Today, Sisterhood(verb), Inc. is an organization dedicated to curating opportunities for women to come together and grow and heal through education, creativity, and community. 

Currently, Tayllor Johnson lives in New York City continuing to learn, read, write, perform, and teach in one of the most artistic hubs in the world. In all she has done, is doing, and will do she embodies her mission: Find new ways poetry can empower, soothe the wounded, and disturb the status quo, setting us all on a path to freedom.
