You won’t get five minutes into a conversation with Malachi Byrd, without hearing about Washington, D.C. An author, teacher, songwriter, and arts advocate from the district, Malachi believes superpowers exist in creative writing. An African-American Studies graduate from Princeton University, MalPractice gets his name from his commitment to mastering his crafts, and staying ready so he never has to get ready. If you follow performing arts in D.C., you’ve probably seen Practice rapping, laughing, and hugging everyone in the room. He often asks, art is made of healing properties, so why not use them?
