I could not have asked for a more powerful and fun reading. It was a pleasure to perform with writer Christine No and singer Nkechi.  If you missed my performance for Nomadic Press in Oakland, you're in luck. I recorded it for the Cocoa Fly podcast. Listen to stories and poems about love, race, family, mental health, Prince, burgers and everything in between.

In a few days I will release a podcast of just my reading, along with some other stuff. Stay tuned!

Big THANKS to Nomadic Press for inviting me and putting this on. Special shout out to MK Chavez, Paul Corman-Roberts and JK Fowler.

A Real, Raw and Beautiful Friday Night in Oakland




This Friday night is going to be off. da. hook. I'll be reading with poet and filmmaker Christine No at Nomadic Press on Telegraph Ave in Oakland, 7pm. It's going to an intimate and fun night. Just to give you a little detail of who we are, Christine No says: 

You know Jenee Darden as a sassy, pithy wisdom slanging poet and essayist but do you know that she's an incredible tireless journalist and podcaster? That she is a staunch fighter for those whose voices need elevating? That this is in her very makeup? You KNOW she ain't delicate either. (But she's definitely a lady!)

You know me mostly as a host and curator. But shit I left the city then the desert then the film industry and producing movies and commercials and yelling at crew members and famous people and too many drugs and New York City and Hipsterville and losing the loves of my life, and warehouse raves and dancing til sunrise and a dream life turned huge depressive breakdown to hideout in the bay, heal and finally write. Hear me? I'm not a flower.

We've got words. We've lived lives. We aren't afraid to share them. Check it - You might have a good time with us.

If not, have some wine, a couple cookies and head over to a bar down the street. It's Friday for chrissake. And if you only have ONE plan on your radar then...

Just come out. [We] love you.
