6-5-1: Aiesha Turman

By 651 ARTS on November 12, 2014

In an effort to help our audience know more about the artists 651 ARTS presents, we have developed the 6-5-1 Interview—six questions, five minutes, one artist. This interview spotlights Triple Consciousness discussant and Founder and Executive Director of The Black Girl Project, Aiesha Turman.

  1. What’s your morning routine?
    • Up at 4am. Yoga, tea, time to myself, reading for personal development, and journaling. Wake my daughter at 6am to get ready/prepped for school.


  2. What’s your fondest memory of being a black girl?
    • My fondest memory of being a black girl would have to be spending time with my maternal grandparents as a child. They took me everywhere, and taught me how to be with people of varying ages and backgrounds. Because of them, I spent time with elders, kids my age, and everything in between.


  3. Double Dutch or Jacks and why?
    • Double Dutch. The physicality provides a release and allows you to let go. It’s a good way to use energy.


  4. If you could visit any place in the world where would it be and why?
    • I’d visit various countries in Africa. I want to marvel in the diversity of the continent up close.


  5. What’s going to be fly, fresh, and fun about being a black woman in 50 years?
    • Everything.


  6. How do you love?
    • Fully.

651 ARTS would like to thank Aiesha Turman for answering our six questions that give a better glimpse of the artists we present. Stay tuned for more artist interviews.
