Imani Russell is a Black/biracial+Boricua queer+trans, and neurodivergent actor, singer-songwriter, poet, and playwright from Crown Heights (Lenapehoking). Trained in classical music, musical theatre, and acting, Imani has performed off-Broadway and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and is an emerging voice-over artist. As a writer, they think about the connections between time, space, family, queerness, and magic. In 2021, Imani was a member of The Lark’s Beyond the Binary inaugural cohort. They also write music under the name NANí and released a two-song EP titled sweetbitter creature in December 2020. Imani believes in Black queer+trans power and safety, Indigenous sovereignty, and art as an act of love.
