Aja Monet is an internationally established poet of Cuban-Jamaican decent. Harry Belafonte has called Aja Monet “The true definition of an artist”. Her craft is an in-depth reflection of emotional wisdom, skill, and activism.
The youngest individual to win the legendary Nuyorican Poet’s Café Grand Slam title, she is recognized for combining her spellbound voice and powerful imagery on stage. Monet was a featured speaker at the Women’s March on Washington DC in 2017 where she read the title poem of her latest book, My Mother Was A Freedom Fighter (Haymarket Books).
In 2018, her book was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work-Poetry. From East New York, Brooklyn to the Olive groves of Palestine, her poems tell the story of daughterhood and women who work to change the world fighting racism, sexism, displacement, and erasure. Monet’s other collections include Inner-City Chants & Cyborg Cyphers (2015), and The Black Unicorn Sings (Penmanship books).
In addition, she collaborated with poet/musician Saul Williams on the book Chorus: a literary mixtape (MTV books/Simon & Schuster). She currently lives in Little Haiti, Miami where she is co-founder of Smoke Signals Studio and dedicates her time to merging arts & culture with community organizing through her work with the Dream Defenders and the Community Justice Project.
