Justice Ride will be emceed by Chijioke B Williams:
Chijioke B Williams has loved stories for as long as she can remember. The ability to connect the author and audience fascinates her endlessly, and she suspects that nothing is more central to the human experience than storytelling. Chi has been hosting a live radio show, Status Quo, for the past five years, during which she has immersed herself in audio drama and begun to write her own. Chijioke seeks to combine her experience as a journalist with her work in radio fiction to bring depth to the characters she writes and the worlds she builds. Chi’s hobbies are parkour, sound design, and subverting societal expectations. She now lives in Chicago, where she can be found engaging in all three.
Artwork for Justice Ride created by the young people of That Goddess Power and the artist Hilly. Hilly is a Chicago transplant from Minneapolis, first arriving in the city to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work explores the intersectionality between popular culture, race, activism and religion while she primarily uses oil paint and explores with other mixed medias. She is a surrealist artist breaking boundaries through traditional forms of what is seen as rational and visionary. @hilllyrose (instagram)
