Watch Culture Queen In Action!
I Like The Me I See! by Culture Queen
Culture Queen’s debut album I Like the Me I See hits all the right notes for families and educators bringing up confident, culturally aware, and curious children. With a spoonful of magic and ancient wisdom, the soulful alto’s voice dances across a fusion of rich calypso, afrobeat, jazz and hip-hop rhythms while inviting you to celebrate all the things that make you who you are. Don’t be surprised to hear your child singing the catchy “Culture Kingdom Kids Theme” or “I’m A Culture Kingdom Kid” in the bathroom, to find yourself dancing in the mirror to the shimmy-worthy "Super Shaker Song". Expect to take a trip around the world with “North, South, East & West”, or even to adopt the soul-stirring “I’m A Tower of Royal Power” into your morning mantras. Bright melodies and uplifting lyrics will have you and your royal children cutting a rug and boogieing down while proudly proclaiming “I like the me I see!”.

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.
