Featuring Spoken Word Artist - Jazzy Miller
Jazzy Miller is a native Memphian and graduate of Rhodes College (’08) where she majored in both Theatre and Spanish. After graduation, Jazzy researched and wrote two one-woman plays (Journey of Truth and Thirteen) and toured both nationally and internationally. During the years of touring her one-woman plays, she did mission work in Africa, Central America, South America and East Asia, teaching on discipleship and making discoveries around the intersections of humanity, service and art. In 2014, she decided to pursue an M.F.A. in Directing at the University of Memphis, intending to start a youth theatre company with kids in the North Memphis community. She began working full-time at Crosstown in 2016 and currently serves as the Director of Theater at Crosstown Concourse, as well as managing the Crosstown Youth Theatre Company. Jazzy also enjoys writing and performing poetry-- and tonight, she is honored to share an original piece with you.
Adama Conteh, Advocacy Officer for Women of Hope Sierra Leone, has a powerful testimony of God’s grace in her own life. Blinded by measles as a toddler, Adama had a door of access to education opened to her by her older brother, who advocated for her to go to the School for the Blind. There she learned independent living skills and received a good education, preparing the way for her mainstreamed education through secondary school and college. She was introduced to church in her youth, but came to a full understanding of the Gospel and a relationship with Christ through her work at Women of Hope. Adama’s commitment to and advocacy for the women in our program stems from her own experience, and her passion for justice. Between teaching in a primary school, sitting on the City Council of Makeni, raising her 2 children, and working for Women of Hope, Adama is a busy woman, but will always make time to intervene on behalf of women with disabilities suffering injustice. You won’t want to miss her testimony!
