Porsche Kelly, aka The Poetic Activist, is an artist, motivational speaker and poet from Oakland, Ca. Her poetry is full of raw conviction, unapologetically spreading messages filled with truth. Whether social justice, God and the church, or her personal life, authenticity, and vulnerability are ever present with every word she writes as she encourages the importance of erasing shame, sharing your story, and remaining 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, corporations and spoken word events across the country.
With a passion for God, black and women empowerment, and mental health, especially among people of color, Porsche aims to bridge the gap between faith & social justice, create atmospheres for conversation on faith, racism, sexism, mental health, and trauma, and inspire others to join in these conversations to find freedom in telling their own stories.
