BIO

Glenance Green is a Chicago-based scholar, activist, playwright, filmmaker, recreational athlete, and published author of the book Shades of Green. Glenance has forged her own creative path to visual and performing arts through writing.

 

She is the founder and director of A g Thing!, a creative agency in the City of Chicago that aids as a catalyst in bringing unsung voices and their narratives to the broader community through artistic activism as a means of shifting political consciousness to influence systems change.  

 

 

 

 

 

Glenance is also the creator of Melanin Voices, a performance collective series of poetry and live literature purposed to showcase the local, unsung voices in literature and highlight the narratives illuminated from their writings. These largely scripted shows, inclusive of poetry, short stories, vignettes, fiction, and non-fiction work of various Chicago artists, are weaved together to create a beautiful narrative.

This event is co-organized by A g Thing!, the #LetUsBreathe Collective, and the Chicago Boricua Resistance.
