 FEATURING: KAI DAVIS

 

Kai Davis is a writer and performer from Philadelphia. In 2016 she received her Bachelors in both African American Studies and English with a concentration in creative writing. Between 2012 and 2016 Kai Davis was the Artistic Director of The Babel Poetry Collective. She has been featured at the San Francisco Opera House, The Kimmel Center, TEDX Philly, on CNN, BET, PBS, and NPR. She is a two time international grand slam champion, winning Brave New Voices in 2011 and The College Union Poetry Slam Invitational in 2016.

When she is not hosting, she tours colleges and universities across the country, performing her original work and facilitating writing workshops. 

As a Queer Woman of Color, much of her work deals with the topics of race, gender, and sexuality and its many intersections. She aims to explore how it affects who we are and how we love.
