Inside Nianda Speaks: Injuncted

Gang injunctions are a serious issue in CA, disproportionately locking up men and women of color in unprecedented numbers. My hope is through this spoken word piece more people will be aware of this overreach in civil liberties, and that justice will prevail for the men and women who are unjustly sitting in California jails awaiting trials at this very moment. For more information please visit

Break Out Season 2015

Its been a great year,
Counting all the blessings I received
Reminiscing on the moments
In this moment
On this Eve.
I’ve perceived so much beauty
Opportunities and doors opened.
I been around the block twice
But remained focused
On this mission given,
Placed upon my life
There’s been times where
I didn’t get it right,
But still I’m in this fight.
And in store is more
Than can dream of.
No resolution but I predict a solution
To all the madness
The sadness we’ve been through it
But peace can overshadow what we’re doing.
And so I write this piece,
To bring in 2015
Break Out Season will be the theme…


Mama Africa

“Mama Africa” is featured in the 2013-2014 San Diego Poetry Annual


Soldiers, invite themselves into areas unwanted.

They beat them,

Hate them,
Rape them,
Deface them,
But there’s nothing to be done to erase the pain they have caused.
With each and every thrust, they touch a nerve unheard of;
In her innocence, there were no marks of sin.
Now, forever from within is an empty feeling,
Numb to the world are our mothers,
Our sisters,
Our precious little girls.
Their tears don’t reach far enough to lubricate what’s meant for love.
Wounded and scarred.
Souls charred from the burns that they’ve endured.
Prevention and protection is the only cure for our women.
Mama Africa,
Beautiful in all her ways,
Your silent cry is not forgotten.

If You Support Syrian Intervention….. Part 2

So, as time passes, President Obama waits for congressional approval, and the American people are adimately saying “Dont do this….” the more things come out about this issue of Syria and what to do. My opinion is obvious. The international world is crying out for The Unoted States to pump the brakes but we don’t hear that. We hear the drums of war beating loudly, almost hypnotizing us into a deep sleep, slowly. If we wake up we’ll ask ourselves, how did we get here……
