Award-winning lyricist and activist, Nina "Lyrispect" Ball was commissioned to create an original poem in response to "Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness" that debuted during #SpelZanelePRIDE. #SpelZanelePRIDE was a panel discussion featuring esteemed guests Dr. Beverly Guy Sheftall, Latishia James-Portis, and Marla Renee Stewart on the sexuality, spirituality, and visibility of #LGBTQI women of the African Diaspora during Atlanta’s annual PRIDE celebration. The panel was preceded with a performance of Lyrispect's original poem – The Reclamation* – and sparked an afternoon of epic and poetic proportions. #SpelMuse #SpelZanele #SpelZanelePRIDE *The Reclamation was originally performed at Spelman College Museum of Fine Art and recorded at the Atlanta University Center Robert W.
