About the author:
Tantra-zawadi, an award winning poet/artist/filmmaker from Brooklyn, New York, has performed to standingroom audiences at venues as far away as South Africa, London, Germany and Toronto. She has performed original works in off-Broadway productions including SOLDIER BLUES, and her one-woman performance piece, GIRL: A CHOREOSPECTIVE.

She is known for being on the cutting edge as an artist regarding issues such as HIV and AIDS awareness. Tantra's poem and video, "Scarlet Waters," was featured on the Product (RED) video wall to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS in Africa and her short documentary, A SILENT GENOCIDE ~ A BRIEF INSIGHT INTO HIV/AIDS edited by Oliver Covrett, takes another look at the personal impact of the disease.
