Jaki Shelton Green

“When it comes to literature and writing, as well as advocacy for literature and writing in North Carolina, and beyond, Jaki Shelton Green is ubiquitous. The operative word for her is dynamism. Her readings are electrifying. She is a presence at the podium, a meld of panache and humility that embraces every audience, regardless of its orientation. She is North Carolina poetry’s Billie Holiday.” — from the NC Literary Hall of Fame
