Sunday Service with Gha’il Rhodes Benjamin

February 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

Join us for another Virtual Sunday Celebration on Facebook Live!

Gha’il Rhodes Benjamin is a Self-empowerment Speaker, Grammy nominated Spoken Word Artist, and 2019 Audelco Award recipient for her portrayal of Poliina Grave, in the play REUNION IN BARTERSVILLE. She was also featured in the 2019 National Black Theatre Festival‘s celebration performance in that same role. In the words of author Les Brown, “she is authentic, talented, mesmerizing and a breath of fresh air. Gha’il’s talent with words is life transforming and mind expanding.”
Although she’s on the road much of the year, Gha’il never forgets her home base. She proudly continues to facilitate “IT TAKES A VILLAGE”, UNY’s Women’s Ministry. In collaboration with UNY’s Outreach Ministry, these amazing women have supported families in NYC and surrounding communities, through toy drives, coat drives, prom dress drives and so much more.
As self-empowerment speaker, master teaching artist, workshop facilitator and performance artist, Gha’il strives to encourage students and audiences of all ages to power forward courageously from the voice within.
Gha’il has written and performed customized poems for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, fundraisers and life celebrations that have made lasting impressions. A poetic tribute written by Gha’il was recently featured in the Spring 2020 issue of African Voices Magazine (Tribute to Ntozake Shange/Part 2). The piece, titled “Tiddies Aint Everything/for Sara the Sunflower Queen”, recognizes the tenacity of breast cancer survivors and the power of their inner strength.
