Ephraim Nehemiah is your next favorite poet! Their spoken word is a radical performance experience using humor, anecdotes and transparent confessions that explore the complexities of queer-identity, breaking generational curses of fatherhood, and praising the triumph amongst the trials of Blackness.
Their work has been featured on TEDx Talks, Button Poetry, AfroPunk, MK Asante’s “Free Tuition”, and The National Basketball Association. They are a 2022 Southern Fried Poetry Slam Champion, 2021 National Poetry Slam Champion, 2020 Baltimore Grand Slam Champion, and multi-time finalist in several of the largest regional poetry competitions in the nation.
Ephraim is the author of The Autobiography of Absence (Twelve Arts Press, 2021), and is currently preparing to tour their one-person show, IntersectIonalIty.
