A graduate of Pratt’s MFA Writing and Activism program, Jennifer Falú works as a full-time social servant in a men’s shelter, as well as a traveling teaching artist. An International Slam Champion, she made her film debut in the movie Mania Days, alongside Katie Holmes, as well as the RZA-directed film Love Beats Rhymes, alongside Jill Scott and Common, where she is also credited as a writer. Falú is also featured in an Emmy Award-winning documentary following the 2016 Brooklyn Slam Team as they compete against ninety other teams. The recipient of a Cave Canem fellowship, she is published in several anthologies and uses her writing as activism work for several organizations. Falú’s other passion projects include Niggas Die Everyday, an art gallery she co-built and an exhibit she co-curated that reconciles the legacy of racial injustice in the United States with the angst and aggression of the hip-hop generation. In addition to being a sermon editorial consultant for some of today’s most promising preachers, and rocking stages and colleges with her poetry collectives, Falú is the proud mother of two children, a loyal Brooklynite, and believes in fashion. Seriously!
