Massey is on a lifelong mission to inspire curiosity, celebration, creativity and challenge how we engage with the world. Her work advocates for human rights and social justice. She explores these issues with a confessional and emotional honesty through Blackness, womanhood, identity, memory and familial relationships.
She published her first collection of poetry, “Bursting at the Seams,” in 2018. The work earned a 2020 nomination for the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Author Awards, which recognizes the Hoosier State’s top emerging authors. She was also a nominee for a 2019 Best of the Net Award, an annual online anthology curated and hosted by Sundress Publications to honor the best online writing.
The mission of the North Manchester Public Library is to provide materials, programs, and services necessary to meet the recreational and educational needs of the community in an easily-accessible facility, which is a community center of activity and information.
