Move The World: Meet Poet Laureate, Brittini Ward

Brittini Ward is a Detroit emerging visual artist, writer, and content-producer. She describes herself as “an old soul at heart, a spiritual being, healer, lightworker, backed by her ancestors, guided by the spirit, and loved by God.” Her hope is that her poetry and art will connect to and awaken hearts and minds or highlight perspectives that need to be told. Brittini received an Emmy Award for her poem ‘Passion Towards Purpose” and received the Kwaanza S.A. Committee Unity Award in 2017. Ward acquired a degree in Professional Communications and Graphic Design from University of Michigan, Flint, where she also “found her voice” through involvement with the Black Student Union. Soon after graduating, she joined AmeriCorp for two years and impacted young lives through mentorship in San Antonio, TX. Brittini Ward went on to receive a Graduate Degree from Ann Prescott College in Arizona, where she participated in a program that involved social justice work throughout the world. As Poet Laureate of “Move The World” Brittini’s poetic expressions address women’s, current, and black cultural concerns, and provide a soundscape for the exhibited art.
