"In this poem
I am a beautiful luscious tree
With birds for roommates
and woodpeckers for alarm clocks
Because Mother Nature never mentioned
a suggestion box to me..."
- Excerpt from, "Tree" by Tayllor Johnson
Tayllor Johnson is a poet, writer, educator, performer, activist, and founder of Sisterhood (verb), Inc. A published poet, she has been writing and performing her poetry and written works for over 15 years. She has been featured in museum exhibits in New York and California and published in several anthologies. She liberates, investigates, and celebrates herself through her written and spoken word and invites others to do the same. Having taught for over ten years, her undergraduate (Mount Holyoke College) and graduate (New York University) research centered around establishing art as a community norm in disenfranchised schools through arts-integrated curriculum development and community outreach. Tayllor's journey fighting for justice and healing as a Black woman in America led her to create Sisterhood (verb), Inc., a creative consulting business dedicated to uplifting Black women and youth through art and community and consulting with other organizations in arts education, social justice, and community building with creativity at the center. Currently, Tayllor is in Santa Barbara, CA, finishing up her first poetry book, Waves Retreat, Revive, Return: A Reflection in Threes, and working to accomplish her mission to find new ways poetry can empower the disenfranchised and soothe the wounded and disturb the status quo, setting us all on a path to freedom.
