Spoken word artist

Michelle Dodd is a spoken word artist from Richmond who has performed at TEDx as well as regional and national slam poetry competitions. She has been a fellow at Watering Hole, a retreat for poets of color, and the coach of the Virginia Union University slam team. Adopted as a baby by a Caucasian couple, her work addresses themes of race and racism, self-acceptance, and monachopsis––the persistent feeling of being out of place.
