Jasmine Williams is a Writer/Producer from South Central Los Angeles, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dramatic Arts and Playwriting from San Francisco State University. She is the Executive Director and host of Da Poetry Lounge, and holds 13 years of organizing artistic residencies that provide equitable creative education to imprisoned and at-risk young adults with non-profit organizations such as Youth Speaks (SF), Say Word LA, B.R.I.D.G.E. Theatre Project, and most recently ArtworxLA. Her work has been featured on TV One, HBO, Department of Cultural Affairs Los Angeles, and the Pan African Film Festival just to name a few. She aims to create responsible art where the communities she represents and want to see represented can reflect, exhale, be still, loud, and free. Jasmine loves mint chocolate chip ice cream, and on her time off she is a UNO champion and a VIP member of Twilight #TeamEdward, before falling asleep to episodes of Hey Arnold or The Office.
