A strong voice in Houston’s poetry scene, dee!colonize brings an in-your-face social commentary to the mic. Over the past 5 years, this Xicana has connected with several artists & activists to bring the message of revolution & community consciousness to the stage.
She was a regular performer for the Underground Merger Collective on Houston’s East End, has hosted at the 1st & 2nd Annual East End Festival, and has read for and organized benefit shows and events dealing with the abolition of the death penalty, an end to police brutality, empowerment of women, immigration rights, black/brown unity, and indigenous pride.
Aside from poetry/activist work, dee!colonize is a student in the ancient style of Danza Mexica, performing with Grupo Tlazolteotl, she is a member of the family-operated, Coal Blooded Grillers, and is the main contributor for a blog about her neighborhood, Denver Harbor.
