Kaleda Davis is a native of New York City. She is an actor, a writer, and a maker of safe space around her. No matter the medium, she is dedicated to telling the stories that made us who we are. She is currently passionate about creative tales of what she calls restorative history. The goal is not to erase anyone’s tale but to reimagine the rest of the story. Kaleda attended Music and Art High school, Talladega College, and The City University of New York. She has studied with Paul Austin, Austin Pendleton, among others. An early version of her play “Bitter Waters” received the Yip Harbaugh award. She has played a wide range of roles, from a singing “Lady of Copper” portraying the Statue of Liberty before turning green to the fiery Aunt Lily in Lynn Nottage’s “Crumbs from the Table of Joy.” Make a difference in just the space around you. It will be enough.
