Genesia Williams was born in Chicago at Cook County Hospital, sometime in the last part of the 1980s. She would have stayed there —redlining and decades-old inequities be damned— if her parents hadn't decided to make the great migration to the mid-sized city of Minneapolis. Genesia is a writer, a graphic designer, student at the school of hard knocks, a godmother, a daughter, a sister, an auntie, and a lover of art. Claude McKay, asked once (as Pilate before him), "but what is truth?" Genesia hopes to answer that in her work. On this journey, she wants to learn, to be a conduit for and to amplify words that may last longer in this world than she will.
