Leah James, Mineral Vocabulary: Performance V, 2017, pit-fired ceramics @greenpointhill #leahjames

Sunday funday at the zoo! #leahjames #firstzootrip

MOST RECENT

Sept 9th, Saturday afternoon, Leah James will give an artist talk about her ceramic installation on view at @Greenpointhill Gallery.
This series of pit-fired ceramic slab paintings play on the nature of time and links the material of fired clay conceptually, as it is one of the formative human technologies. Clay is used abundantly in contemporary society but again relates to prehistory as the materials that make up the clay body have theoretically existed from the beginning of the universe and time itself, condensed within the solar nebulae.

At my second event on Saturday @toyajonesherbert and the whole @yadprogram surprised me 😭-- this is BY FAR one of my favorite things I'm involved in. I am so honored to teach poetry, performing and share my life experience with these kids. I leave better every time I go there! I always say "Be the person you needed when you were younger" -- I'm sure trying to do that. My only prayer is that I leave an impact on at least ONE young person before I leave this earth. ❀️ #LeahJames #LeahBeEverywhere #Passion #Purpose #love #youth #spokenwordartists #spokenwordpoetry #artists #publicspeaking #BookMe MsLeahJames.com

"Dear Black Man" hit over 10,000 views! 😭
I would not be who I am with out the intimate influence of Black people. That's an plain as I can put it. When I had no one the people who stepped up were people who didn't look like me. When I was unloved and forgotten the main people who loved me and took me in were people who are black. Not once in my life has my reality matched the negative images of Black people shown in the media. Black people are the back bone of this country and the foundation of the ENTIRE world. This poem is just a glimpse of my heart and I will continue to stand up, fight for and speak out against the oppression of people of Color. In light of what has been going on in our country we need to spread positivity more than ever. Positivity and love is NOT enough to dismantle a racist system but love must be the foundation of the change we need to make.

Okay first of all let's just BLESS THE LORD for the glow up. Lol second of all I'm 14 in the pic on the left and I was a late bloomer lol. What. The. Heck. Am. I. Wearing!? Yes, that's two skirts. Holiness Is still right πŸ˜‚ -- the left is me sign language interpreting at Church camp or a conference when I first moved to NJ. The right is me Speaking at a college in NYC 12 years later. If you would have told 14 year old me I would be doing this I would have ran away. Life is crazy. God has a plan. One that MUST come to pass once you say YES. I promise you I had no idea I'd be here. I am amazed DAILY by the internal and external fulfillment of Gods promises. Not because I didn't believe them, but because I didn't know it would happen so soon or so beautifully. Say yes, wait, Love God. That's it.

It took me years to get here. I'm not talking about this stage. I'm talking about being bold enough to speak. Being confident enough to believe I had the audacity to do so. It took me years of undoing the destruction life brought about. It took many nights of arguing with God, telling him I'm sure He chose the wrong one. Many nights of crying myself to sleep, wanting to die, waking up to disappointment. It took sacrifice, swallowing my pride to ask for help, reaching out when I didn't want to even keep going. It took people judging me, turning their backs on me and STILL not liking me for no particular valid reason. It took me breaking out of every box I was put in. And it's gonna take a hell of a lot more to keep going. But I was born for this, this is only the beginning. ❀️ every hard time has been worth it. I'm so thankful to be alive.
