PerAnkhLIVE! RAW! is honored to welcome the "Diverse, innovative and multi-genre, Opal Palmer Adisa" who "is an exceptional talent, nurtured on cane-sap and the oceanic breeze of Jamaica. Charismatic and informed, Adisa’s concerns span the gamut from children to the environment, and as such there is hardly any topic that she has not written about either in poetry, prose or essay.  A highly sought-after motivational speaker, Opal Palmer Adisa has lectured and read her work throughout the United States, Europe, South Africa, South America, and the Caribbean. An award-winning poet and prose writer Dr. Adisa has twelve titles to her credit, including the novel, It Begins With Tears (1997), proclaimed by Rick Ayers as one of the most motivational works for young adults."

Dr. Adisa has been a resident artist in internationally acclaimed residencies such as Bi-national Fulbright Institute (Egypt), Sacatar Institute (Brazil), McColl Center for Visual Art (North Carolina) and Headlines Center for the Arts (California, USA). Opal Palmer Adisa’s work has been reviewed by Ishmael Reed, Al Young, and Alice Walker (Color Purple), who described her work as “solid, visceral, important stories written with integrity and love.”

As an accomplished storyteller of African & Caribbean tales, Adisa follows in the tradition of the African “griot” weaving history and culture to entertain and inform about the intricacies and wonders of life. Through her imaginative characterizations of people, places and things, and her melodious voice, she is able to transport her listeners to the very wonderlands she creates...

Dr. Opal Palmer Adisa is a vivacious, multi-talented speaker who will enthrall and mesmerize you... Currently, Dr. Adisa extends her gifts and exchanges with other artists as the Editor-in-Chief of The Caribbean Writer [UVI Publications] and Literature/Creative Writing Professor at the University of the Virgin Islands in St. Croix.
