Nia Hampton is an artist-educator-organizer.
In her immediate past life (2015-2017) she was an international freelance journalist who split her time between Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia and her hometown of Baltimore. All of these places heavily influence her creative writing, so much so she began self publishing ebooks (buy them here). Check out a review of her second e-book Cicatrizes on Afropunk.com. She’s currently back in her hometown working on her first sci-fi YA novel manuscript. It’s terrifying to write so you know it’s gonna be good. In the meantime, you can purchase her ebooks here.
In the spring of 2018 she debuted her first solo art show “Drapetomania; The Strong Urge to Escape” at the Waller Gallery in Baltimore MD. The exhibition was an expansive documentation of her photography within Afro-Latino communities and explored themes like environmental racism, African spiritual practices, femicide, black Brazilian feminism, haircut culture, and Love. You can read more about the show here.
Out of the programming during her solo show, The Black Femme Supremacy Film Fest was born. “2 future 4 it’s own good” this film fest aims to center femme-identified black people of varying ethnicity and nationalities. You can submit your film here.
Nia Hampton is available to write, make art, talk, teach and lead workshops.
