Speaker - Grace Ejiwale

Grace Ejiwale was born in a blizzard on December 31, 1987 in Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up in the diverse communities of Roxbury and Dorchester. As she grew, Ejiwale gained and appreciated a deep and rich passion for the arts, social justice and spirituality. "My passion came from learning how to express the inequalities I saw day to day by first being mentally aware of daily injustices," Ejiwale said. Ejiwale found a passion for art at a young age, saying “to be able to express yourself safely, in a supportive and therapeutic environment is very important. Growing up in an environment where some dreams are nurtured and others aren't based on race, gender and economics has been and still is an issue today in how certain groups will be served by their government.”

Ejiwale graduated from the University of Boston-Massachusetts with Political Science as her major and two concentrations in Womens Study and Africana Studies. Ejiwale can be contacted at grace.ejiwale001umb.edu.
