Tomasia is a poet, educator, media maker and community worker. She interrogates issues of race, class and gender with her work and seeks to address social inequity. She has performed in New York City’s legendary venues like Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Blue Note and Joe’s Pub as well as NYC’s notorious jails on Riker’s Island. Tomasia has opened for the legendary poet Gil Scott Heron and performed with the likes of grammy nominated Me’Shell NdegeOcello. She has recorded one album, one EP and is a featured artist on many records including Ursula Rucker’s (of Roots fame) album Ruckus Soundsysdom, produced by King Britt. According to Okayplayer, “Tomasia’s rhymes are like a hybrid between MC Lyte and Angela Davis, a poisonous combination.” Tomasia’s documentary about racial ambiguity in America, entitled Middle Passage, has been screened at the International Center of Photography. She holds a Master’s Degree in Media Studies from the New School and currently teaches media production to the public for NYC Parks, Media Labs.
