adrienne danyelle oliver is a poet-educator, hip-hop scholar from Little Rock, AR currently living in the SF Bay Area. She enjoys writing about intergenerational healing. She has published two chapbooks, the body has memories (Nomadic Press) and collective madness (Finishing Line Press), which include these reflections. Part poetry, part memoir, these chapbooks are the beginning of a liberation she hopes to witness among all bodies harboring historical trauma.

She's also an intuitive creativity guide for other Black scholars working to get a narrative set free.
