Zenobia Connor cannot resist a good story. After a childhood spent listening to her family’s awe-inspiring tall and short tales, she further honed her “ear” for storytelling with an English degree from Spelman College and a Masters in Comparative Literature from Binghamton University.
Deeper intrigue with the mechanics of Black performance and cultural production led her to a graduate program in Performance Studies at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She enjoys peeking in on the liminal space between the theatricalities of life and art, and is preoccupied with the topic of building socially sustainable arts institutions.
In addition to producing arts programming, she contributes to the world’s stories as a writer, dramaturge, documentarian, and self-fashioned archivist. The most rewarding story she is engaged in is that of her son, Cho. Though a hardcore Brooklynite at heart, she currently calls the Island of Long her home.
