2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Romeeka Williams will create a collection of writing and poetry from workshops facilitated by the Youth Art & Self-empowerment Project, held every Saturday at a Philadelphia prison. Romeeka will uplift the voices of young people tried and incarcerated as adults by sharing the writing with readers who want to learn where theses young writers come from, how they got to this point in their lives, and what trauma they have experienced that influenced their decisions. Romeeka will encourage the voices of these young people and show why so many people of color end up incarcerated because of the school-to-prison pipeline.
