CREATIVE EXTREMIST FOR LOVE * JUSTICE DOULA

I am a mama-activist-contemplative-healer-public intellectual who believes in throwing parties as a key revolutionary strategy. I am a healing justice practitioner, writer, faith-rooted activist & organizer, and speaker. I love bringing people together to explore the intersections of our lives, awaken empathy and fight oppression. I am obsessed with shalom, spend too much time on social media reading articles and making up hashtags. I long to lead in a way that would make Ella Baker proud. I believe with all that I am that my liberation is tied up in yours – so let’s get free together.

Recently named one of the Black Christian leaders changing the world in Huffington Post, Micky encourages others to join her in moments of holy disruption and self-care in community.

“Until the killing of black men, black mothers’ sons, becomes as important to the rest of the country as the killing of a white mother’s son, we who believe in freedom cannot rest until that happens.”
