Jasmyne K. Rogers is a native of Wilcox County, Alabama in the United States and graduate of Georgia State University. She thoroughly enjoys writing soul stories that reflect the history, culture, and progression of people of African descent. Jasmyne K. Rogers’ art of storytelling was sparked at the age of twelve when she watched Dr. Maya Angelou recite “Phenomenal Woman” on Oprah. Her passion for writing has also been cultivated by soul stories that were told on her grandmother’s front porch with wooden boards and meshed screen during her childhood. She is a contributing writer for NU Tribe Magazine and editorial fellow for The Jeli. Her work has been on various platforms that empower and honor the diversity, brilliance, and strength of Blackness—more specifically, Black womanhood.
