The minute I stop being who God created me to be,
take the mic away.
My words aren’t worth hearing.
— Porsche Kelly

Porsche Kelly, aka The Poetic Activist, is a motivational speaker and spoken word artist from Oakland, Ca. Her poetry is full of raw conviction, unapologetically spreading messages filled with a vital ingredient society tries to erase: truth. Whether social justice, God and the church, love, or her personal life, authenticity, transparency, and vulnerability are ever present with every word she writes and she continually pushes the importance of remaining true and genuine to oneself, despite popular opinion.

Porsche has been invited to speak at as well as facilitate workshops at numerous events such as Ted Talk, Adobe Software, The National Equity Project, the 2018 Women's March, the 1st & 2nd Annual Black Women's March, & Mayor Ron Dellums' Celebration of Life. She has also performed at several college campuses, churches, and spoken word events in the Bay Area and beyond.

Porsche has a passion for black and women empowerment and aims to bridge the gap between faith & social justice, inspiring people to rise up and fight against racism, sexism, and human trafficking as well as address mental health, all while unashamedly sharing the gospel. She seeks to not only use her own voice and art but to help raise up the next generation of artists to use theirs.
