Presenter Bio

Jovelyn Richards has worked for over 25 years in marginalized communities as a family advocate and community artivist/educator. She was instrumental in designing and implementing one of the first client-centered culturally diverse, culturally sensitive home-based curriculum in the state of Minnesota before bringing her healing modalities to the Bay Area.

As a result of her years of work in diverse communities and reflection about the people she served, Richards believes it is essential to listen to the narratives of individuals and their communities. She started integrating story-telling and other arts into her work as tools for healing both individuals and communities. Richards facilitated a series of healing workshops at Healthy Black Families Inc.   Richards as a theater director and artist in residence; La Pena Cultural Center with community members to share their stories in intimate spaces of healing and moving them to center stage including: 9-1-1 What’s Your Emergency? A court drama putting calls on brown and black people for moving in space.

In October 2019 Richards moved to Honolulu, HI. Richards surrounded and inspired by the healing Oahu has offered her spirit is ready in the rebuilding of this new world coming.

“Participating in Black Healing October is important to me because it is the work I am born of the thing that comes in my sleep pocketful of love notes of encouragement and recipes of healing. It’s what makes the laughter come when the sky gets heavy to hold up and all that blue/light fat clouds brush against my cheeks. What’s important to do this work is the tilt of a dark head the soft sign I hear, the turn arch of her/him/she/dem/dat be kin folks. Whats important now is space to heal to move forward cuz we are our ancestors wildest dreams.”
