Today at at 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT on Instagram live, Black Girl Nerds host Ryanne Bennett interviews Singer and Author Morgan Harper Nichols.
Morgan started her career as a full-time touring singer-songwriter and musician. It was on the road that she cultivated her curiosity and passion for writing, art, and design and slowly began to share her work online.
In 2017, Morgan started a project where she invites people to submit their stories to her website. From there, she creates art as a response to their stories and sends it to them before sharing the work publicly. All stories and names are kept private. The fruit of this project is shared daily around social media, in publications, and various creative collaborations and installations.
As an artist, Morgan has been collaborated with a wide range of brands including Coach, Adobe, Vogue Singapore, Aerie, and more. As a designer and author her work has been available in many stores, including Anthropologie, Barnes and Noble, and Target. Her book of poetry and art, “All Along You Were Blooming,” is available where books are sold. She is on the board of directors at TWLOHA (To Write Love on Her Arms).
Her forthcoming book, How Far You Have Come: Musings on Beauty and Courage will be released April 6th. Morgan is originally from Atlanta, Georgia, and she and her husband Patrick currently reside with their son Jacob, in Phoenix, Arizona, where you can also find her studio and shop, Garden24.
