I am a poet, teaching artist, playwright, actor, dancer and sometime musician. I am a Detroit native, currently representing the Twin Cities. I aim to be a quality ambassador of poets, as well as artists in general. The artistic self is experiencing serious neglect in today's society and economy, which necessitates an elevation of our work and focus. I hope to remain a part of that movement. Because it is indeed a movement. In the style of Harvey Milk: my name is Khary Jackson, and I'm here to recruit you. We are made to move.
