Dessa

Dessa is a rapper, writer, speaker, and a proud member of the Minneapolis hip hop collective, Doom.t.ree. The Utne Reader calls her, “A one-woman powerhouse…with a literary sensibility and an aversion to genre clichés.” Her most recent album, Parts of Speech, debuted at #76 on the Billboard charts. As a writer she’s published two collections. Spiral Bound is mostly essays; A Pound of Steam is poetry. (Odds are she has copies of both in her grey backpack right now.) As a speaker, she’s lectured at colleges and universities throughout the Midwest, including a keynote presentation for the Nobel Peace Prize Forum.
