Tell it Like it ‘TIS’

October 7, 2023

Lakema Bell’s One Woman Show, Tell It Like It ‘TIS‘ invites you to embark on a heartfelt journey through a spectrum of emotions, from spiritual ritual laughter to moments of shock, joy, sadness, and ultimate victory.

As Lakema gracefully navigates through the pervasive challenges of white supremacy, you’ll witness her reawakening, as she rediscovers her voice and rekindles her joy. Her odyssey takes her through the depths of mental illness, the anguish of her children’s suffering, the weight of internalized racial inferiority, the quest to emerge from her mother’s shadow, and the determination to raise her own children in a manner different from her upbringing.

Lakema Bell is a luminary in the realm of African-Centered Thought Artistry. She is a catalyst for change, a dedicated community activist, a mesmerizing African dancer and instructor, a masterful choreographer, an adept event and grant manager, a motivational powerhouse, a trusted coach, a devoted wife of 23 years, and a nurturing mother of four.

At the helm of The Skin I’m In LLC, an African-centered organization, Lakema empowers individuals to embrace self-confidence and body positivity through the transformative medium of African Dance. Her culturally curated experiences, facilitation skills, and unwavering commitment serve as the tools for self-discovery and self-awareness.
