Meet our readers: Berry


Lacresha Berry, better known as Berry, is a singer/songwriter, actress, poet, educator, and writer from Queens by way of Lexington, Kentucky. She received her B.A. in Theatre from the University of Kentucky. She honed her playwriting skills there and has gone on to produce three one-woman shows since 2002. Her latest one-woman show, Browngirl. Bluegrass., documents her life as a brown girl coming of age in the bluegrass state of Kentucky.
