Women who participate in In Full Color and our other programming join a sisterhood that spreads across the country and beyond. We also are deeply invested in helping each woman continue to grow as artists over time and supporting them in their projects. Watch this page to see what these talented writers, actresses and artists are up to!

Rukiya Bluford, a Black woman with short natural hair, touches her heart

Rukiya is a writer, therapist, care manager and dreamer. Born and raised in Jersey City, Rukiya utilizes her voice in different outlets to express herself and connect with her community. An Alumni of the Peers Educating Peers program, Rukiya was exposed to multiple facets of healing and creativity. She now incorporates what she has learned to continue to liberate herself and empower others. heights

She has performed several times for In Full Color on tour and you can see her powerful poem "Three things I learned before becoming a woman," as the opening of IFC19 during its screening on July 18 as part of the Bloom Virtual Summit fundraiser.
