Patricia's stories support both individual and collective work and take the form of poetry, music, narrative, essays, plays, novels, nonfiction, commentary, and educational presentations that symmetrically deconstruct the American dream as it applies to black people and underrepresented populations. Believing the core of all art is a story, Patricia has spent years working on her writing projects so that they are multi-dimensional.
From Fall of the House of Snow to Aunt Maggie's Mojo OR The Devil in Angel Brown, she has been crafting her storytelling. Her current one woman show, The Perils of a Southern Black Woman: stories, tales, and nightmares told in the light is her first foray into multiple storytelling and multi-media performance. Patricia continues to deepen her research to steadily perfect her craft. She is a wandering artist walking and talking with the ancestors. Together they are encountering, engaging, and reflecting on the many landscapes of the past, present, and future. Patricia believes, we are the stories of our people. SANKOFA!
