My Place: Cleo Wade

Provided by: 


Instagram-era poet Cleo Wade invites us into her New York apartment to talk about rug dealers, a James Baldwin candle, and the power of positive thinking.


New York-based artist and poet Cleo Wade is best known for using her uplifting social media presence to share her work. Finding time in between writing for Teen Vogue and sitting on the board of the National Black Theatre, the New Orleans-born artist’s modern brand of poetry sees her share bite-sized handwritten or typewriter-typed pieces of positivity directly with her near quarter of a million Instagram followers.
