In 2012, Justina Kehinde made theatre history by directing, acting and co-producing the first all black female production on a Cambridge stage. In September of this year, she and a co-producer and fellow cast member, took the For Colored Girls play to London; the show sold out in 24hrs.

Justina played the lady in blue in her five-star rated performance of For Colored Girls London.

Justina is an award winning actress, director, poet and jazz singer. An English literature and Social Anthropology student at Cambridge University, she was twice voted Rare Rising Star 2013, an award for one of the top ten black students in the UK. She’s also creative editor and contributor for Independent Women’s Magazine, Magnify.

Justina will take the stage at TEDxYouthCroydon, where she will share her journey and evoke thoughts and emotions with her poetry. Watch via livestream on the 16th of November between 12 and 6pm.
