Ama Akoto

POETIC MUSINGS BY (AND ABOUT) A WOMAN IN SEARCH OF HERSELF.


Ama is a Black feminist writer whose passions revolve around DC residents and good IPAs. In her professional work, she strives to uplift Black people through communications strategy and narrative building.

When she’s not writing self-indulgent poetry or sweating over erotic fiction, Ama works with Frontline Women DC to provide tangible support to Black women, femmes, and queer people in Chocolate City.


You can find some of her work featured alongside other Black artists in the first issue of the Black Woman’s Latitude zine.
