Cleo Wade

“Cleo Wade is a poet, artist, and speaker that creates empowering messages, blending simplicity with positivity, femininity and arresting honesty. With the belief that art is for all people, Cleo creates large-scale public art pieces.” – www.cleowade.com 

This NYC-based artist, feminist, and champion of self-care uses her popular Instagram feed to share mental and emotional vitamins with the masses.  She’s been described as relentlessly positive and her hopeful spirit is evident in her Instagram posts.  Outside of writing poetry, you’ll find Cleo championing gender and race equality and supporting community organizations such as the Creative Council of Emily’s List, the National Black Theater in Harlem and Free Arts (a non-profit creating arts programs for New York City’s under-served children).

Check out one of her recent poems An Open Letter to My Dearest America.
