Glenis Redmond
Glenis Redmond is poet, educator, performer, and counselor rolled into one passionate soul. She presents her poetry in performances that cause the printed word to spring from the page and dance, sing, weep, and laugh. Glenis tells stories with poetry—tales from her life, her family, her African-American heritage, and her sensitive observations of the world around her—inspiring audiences of all ages. Her original poetry pays tribute to those who lift us up: mothers and grandmothers, sisters and brothers, and those in the world who dare to write, to speak, to dance, to sing for us all. Her performance is for adults and teens and is a State Theatre Artist-in-Residence, sponsored by the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. Her performance is one of three events in Celebration of April as Poetry Month.
