Poet and activist Natasha T. Miller celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. events at Thiel

GREENVILLE, Pa.—Performance poet, author, activist and film producer Natasha T. Miller joins the Thiel College community for its celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. events Jan. 15-16. She will be the keynote speaker at both the 7:30 p.m. Sunday “Be The Dream” kickoff program and the 4 p.m. Monday interfaith community service. Both events are in the David Johnson Memorial Chapel on the campus of Thiel College.

These events are free and open to the public. A bonfire, gathering and candlelight march precedes Sunday’s kickoff program at 6:45 p.m. 

Miller was the featured poet at the 2015 national Evangelical Lutheran Church in America youth gathering—RiseUp Together—in Detroit, speaking before 30,000 attendees.

In 2007, she was crowned the Detroit Poetry Slam’s grand slam champion and has been a member of three national poetry slam teams. She has also been a Women of The World Poetry Slam finalist two years in a row.

Miller produces the “It’s Not About You Poetry Slam Series.” She started her own publishing company “All I Wanna Say Publishing” and published her first book of quotes “Dreams of a Beginner.” She is working on a memoir titled “Rape, Suicide, God, and Poetry.”

In July of 2012, Miller was one of 12 performing artists selected out of hundreds to become a Detroit Kresge artist fellow and be awarded a $25,000 grant. She has published two books including “Coming out of Nowhere,” a social networking memoir about homosexuality and cyberbullying.
