Lillian Allen’s Bio

Lillian Allen is a grassroots artist, cultural activist and university professor is considered a godmother of rap, hip-hop, dub and spoken word. Her work is used across the educational spectrum, encompassing alternate learning contexts from kindergarten to post graduate studies.

Lillian’s highly crafted and empowering poetics forges a contemporary sensibility and springs from a deep well of understanding and rooted knowledge about the cares, struggles, hopes, dreams and the possible futures of women, men and young people – of the textured multiverses we inhabit. Themes of transformation and incisive perspective lace the body of her work.
