Kelsey Ogbewe is an essayist, poet, and activist with an affinity for creative storytelling. Born in Silver Spring, Maryland, to Nigerian and Haitian parents, Kelsey began writing and performing in 2012. He has been a regular Open Mic performer at Busboys & Poets in Washington, D.C, a speaker for local school assemblies, and a guest artist for the Speak Life Tour. He aims to produce honest art that explores Black personhood, justice, relationships, education, and spirituality. In his own words, writing has been his primary vehicle for self-discovery and creative freedom. In the end, Kelsey hopes that his poems, essays, and other creative ventures express the same sincerity Malcolm X spoke of: "I want to be remembered as someone who was sincere. Even if I made mistakes, they were made in sincerity. If I was wrong, I was wrong in sincerity." You can find Kelsey's prose, poetry, and performances on Medium, Youtube, and other online platforms.
