Rheonna Thornton

Rheonna Nicole is a slam poet and spoken word artist from Louisville, KY. Her poetry is an authentic reflection of what she embodies as a person. It is raw, bold, black and unapologetic about it's existence. Her work speaks to struggle in urban communities, fat bodies and women/girls of color. Noticing the lack women poets in Louisville, Rheonna created her own poetry competition called Lipstick Wars Poetry Slam. Lipstick Wars is a platform created to give a voice to all women, trans women and girls through the art of slam poetry.
