My Journey from Pretend to "Making Believe" | Jessica Smith | TEDxRVA

The old adage says “Seeing is believing.” Children’s entertainer Jessica “Culture Queen” Smith believes that “being” is believing. In this talk, she tells the story of how she has become one with the character she portrays -- and shares a few of the lessons she has learned along the way. This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. It was filmed and edited by Tijo Media at the Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Arts Center in Richmond, VA. #education #supergirl #selfesteem #blackhistory #culturequeen #mansamusa #blacksuperhero For master teacher and performing artist, Jessica “Culture Queen” Smith, there’s nothing more important than helping children and families connect with their culture and discover their own regalia.Smith has traveled the globe to awaken children’s curiosity, cultural awareness, and self-pride. She has taken center-stage at the Kennedy Center, trained educators at Yale University, facilitated workshops for teachers and students in Ghana, and delivered community-based programming for the Smithsonian and dozens of other museums, libraries, and schools. Smith holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theater Education and African-American Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University.
