Micia Mosely is a Brooklyn-based comedian, actress, and educator, and a founding artist with the Nursha Project, a group committed to supporting artists and projects rooted in creative sustainable development and socio-political offerings. Since earning her Ph.D. in education from UC Berkeley, Micia has shared her comedic performance in cities all over the United States.
During our Festival in 2009, she performed her show "Where My Girls At," depicting the lives of several Black lesbian women and their experiences, challenging the notion that there is only one Black lesbian experience.
"A New York Innovative Theater Award Nominee, the show, while hilarious, continues to tackle difficult issues including inter and intra-group racism, sexism, and homophobia."

Her comedic style and performance centers around the idea that art can be used as a medium for social change and consciousness raising and the importance of creating this revolutionary relationship between the performer and the audience.
"Micia Mosely loves to make people laugh, think and transform their lives. She’s uses improvisation, puppets, video, drumming, drag, power point, flip charts, lesbian processing –essentially whatever won’t get her arrested." -Micia Mosley
