Meet the Speaker

OnRaé LaTeal, aka “The Liberation Music Maker,” is a music producer, creative arts educator and community organizer whose work sits at the intersection of art, technology and education equity. Known for transforming sounds from the movement into contemporary songs, her music serves as the soundtrack of the revolution and ongoing work of community organizers in Washington, DC.

OnRaé’s most celebrated work includes the Black Joy Experience, a compilation album of mainstream freedom songs and liberation chants she produced in conjunction with the national member-based activist organization, Black Youth Project 100. As a seasoned educator, OnRaé operates as the founder of two creative-arts grassroots initiatives including the Freedom Futures Collective and Black Girls Handgames Project. Both work to uplift the brilliance of Black and Brown youth who have been traditionally locked out of professional STEAM-related opportunities.
