Junauda Petrus-Nasah

Entertainment & Toys, Books
Women Owned
Junauda Petrus-Nasah is a creative activist, writer, playwright, and multi-dimensional performance artist who is born on Dakota land, West-Indian descended, and African-sourced. Her work centers around Black wildness, -futurism, ancestral healing, sweetness, spectacle and shimmer. Petrus-Nasah has written works for the stage, screen and page, employing poetics and experiences re-membered via ancestral dreaming and research of their lost stories. She is inspired by her parents and ancestors who immigrated from the Caribbean bringing their magic and trauma with them, and her art ripples with their legacy. She is influenced by the Middle passage and diaspora, Black folks in Minneapolis, ancestral magic, and stories of queerness and womanhood within these contexts. Speculative fiction and magical realist elements are central to her work. In 2009 she began studying aerial circus arts in Brooklyn, New York with Kiebpoli Calnek, focusing on the corde lisse, (a hanging smooth rope) and explored through performance themes of Blackness, queerness and womanhood reclaimed and imagined in the vertical space, complicating the legacy of violence and lynching that we associate with hanging Black bodies. In 2012, she co-founded with Erin Sharkey, Free Black Dirt, an experimental artist collective based in Minneapolis, creating original theatre and performance, hosting innovative events, organizing local artists, and promoting and supporting the emerging artists’ community in the Twin Cities. In 2014 she received a Travel and Study grant from the Jerome Foundation to study West African and Afro-Caribbean dance and aerial/circus arts. Also in 2014, she was recipient of the Many Voices Mentorship from the Playwright’s Center to study playwriting. Her play, There Are Other Worlds, used aerial arts and a cast of all Black women to tell the story of a mother and activist who has spent the majority of her two teenage daughter’s lives incarcerated. In 2016, she co-wrote with Erik Ehn, Queen, a play and puppet show about a Black grandmother journeying through her grief after the police shooting her grandson, starring the late and iconic, Laurie Carlos. From 2015-2017, she was lead artist with the Heart of the Beast’s Theatre’s May Day parade, where she engaged community in building and walking in a social justice themed puppet parade. In 2016 she was awarded, City Page’s Artist of the Year. Last year, she was awarded another Jerome Travel and Study grant in literature to research queerness and African-inspired spiritualities in Trinidad and Tobago for writing this book. In 2017, she began writing and directing, Sweetness of Wild, an episodic-poetic-film-series that centers an inter-generational cast of Black folks, navigating themes of Black Lives Matter, life after Prince, first-love and bike culture against the backdrop of Minneapolis. Her first book, the young adult novel, The Stars and The Blackness Between Them, received the 2020 Coretta Scott King Honor Book Award.

I love the Word of God. I became a believer at 27, over twenty years ago, and I knew next to nothing about the Bible. But over the past nineteen years, in particular, I’ve studied daily with my colored pencils . . . and coffee. Bible goes well with coffee. I know firsthand the power of the Word to renew and transform, to heal and restore, to convict and strengthen. It does all those things and more in me. Continually. And also in me is this irresistible urge to share the wonder of this amazing truth with others. Which is where my laptop comes in. I can’t remember a time I didn’t write, from notebooks full of poetry and song lyrics as a schoolgirl to briefs to the court as a litigating attorney. But I couldn’t have imagined God calling me to write for Him. I was on maternity leave with my firstborn, praying about the type of home-based business I could start, because I knew the Lord was tugging on my heart to be home with Him. I took a trip to Barnes & Noble, got a book on home-based businesses, and started praying about what product I could bring to the marketplace. Then one day in the middle of church, the Lord spoke clearly to my heart—and completely redirected me. He wasn’t calling me to make widgets. People needed salvation, and He wanted me to write about my spiritual journey.

Garden24 began in Spring of 2019, as writer Morgan Harper Nichols began to watch things bloom, professionally and personally. With such a wide response to her daily releases of artwork on Instagram, Morgan sought to create something more permanent. With every month that went by, she released a few new prints and stickers. They hung on walls, were gifted to friends, were planted on water bottles, laptops, and notebooks. And with that, she saw it grow. She added planners to add coffee dates in, sketchbooks to create pieces of art, journals to remember life moments, and mugs to drink coffee together. Garden24 became a garden - of community, gathering, and of art. It lives now as a reminder that when we plant together, we bloom.
