Meet our Inaugural Youth Storyteller in Residence!
Logan Green is the Initiative on Gender Justice & Opportunity’s inaugural Youth Storyteller in Residence. She is a 17-year-old writer, activist, and actress from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. In 2021, she won the National Speech and Debate competition in the Original Spoken Word category for her poem “Reclaiming Girlhood,” which she wrote after reading our Girlhood Interrupted report–and became the first Black girl from Mississippi to win a national speech and debate championship. Using poetry, she raises awareness of the problems disproportionately affecting Black people, especially Black girls. Logan has won various awards for her original work. She plans to continue her activism and become a professional actress and writer.
