Staceyann Chin is a fulltime artist. A resident of New York City and a Jamaican National, she has been an “out poet and political activist” since 1998. From the Nuyorican Poets' Cafe to one-woman shows Off- Broadway to acting in Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe
and performing in both the stage and film versions of Howard Zinn’s Voices of a People's History of the United States,
to starring in the Tony nominated, Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam
on Broadway, Chin credits the long list of "things she has done" to her grandmother's hard-working history and the pain of her mother's absence.
