Spoken Word is a uniquely African American art form, which has for decades been part of the historic oral tradition of African peoples. And, in the Midwest, no one is better known for its moving, dramatic, sometimes comedic, always poignant presentation than Felicia Webster. Felicia Webster combines relevant, heartfelt words into lyrically moving pieces that are sometimes accompanied by her beautiful singing voice, originally composed music, and theatrical presentation. Having performed from the Midwest to the East Coast, she has honed her talent and become a much sought-after artist. Creating two of the first premier Spoken Word venues in Omaha: InFoRtHyMz and Poetic Fusion in the late 1990's, her ability to weave poetry, performance and music together is a creatively delicious experience. She has taught and performed in schools, arts venues, nightclubs, colleges and universities, community centers, homeless shelters, drug and alcohol facilities, museums and theaters. She has also been blessed to be a part of a dynamic duo Daughters of the Diaspora where she has shared the stage with Sonja Sanchez, Jill Scott, Sarah Jessica Care-Moore along with other various local and national poets, spoken word artists, slam poets, Def Jam poets, actors, dancers, and musicians around the country. Currently working on her spoken word album, a children’s book and multimedia performance piece, she is a woman who states enthusiastically, 'I couldn't live without art. I am an artist. This is my life's work.' With a degree in Education, Felicia's classes and workshops combine textbook knowledge, cultural content and artistic expertise to create fun and interactive learning experience.
