Poets & Prophets Presents Shayna Israel

Shayna Israel founded the feminist rap collective 3XLADYCREW with Bryn Mawr students Menda Franchise François and Nikki López.  Active as both an artist and a social activist, she played a major role in reviving a dormant Bryn Mawr Women’s Center, served as editor-in-chief of the literary magazine Kaleidoscope, taught poetry to high-school students, and helped found Bryn Mawr’s Social Justice Pilot Program, which encourages Bryn Mawr students with different backgrounds and life experiences to come together to explore what issues of diversity mean to them and how those issues affect their lives.
