Speaker Bio
Antoinette Cooper (we/us) is a writer, rainmaker, TEDx speaker, and founder of Black Exhale, a space for the liberated Black body. She’s committed to healing collective trauma through the arts, ancestral healing, social justice, and medical humanities. She understands that there is no separation between all the realms of the body, the earth, and the arts so her work explores the intersections of these multiple dimensions. She’s taught at Columbia University and CUNY School of Medicine and has led writing workshops from The Metropolitan Museum of Art to Rikers Island Correctional Facility. She holds a B.A. from Cornell, a Master of Fine Arts from Columbia, and sits on the board of Narrative Medicine at CUNY School of Medicine.
