Youth Poet Ambassador of Allegheny County, 2020-2021
Grey Weatherford-Brown is a 17-year old Youth Ambassador of Allegheny County. During their 7 years attending Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts CAPA as a literary art major they have actively participated in student led walk-outs, sit-ins, and protests; including the walk-out following the pardoning of the officer who fatally shot Antwon Rose Jr, and several climate strikes at the City County Building. Their poetry explores definitions of self through a blend of memory, history, nature, and political commentary. They seek to define truth as not a permanent set of rules but an evolving force for good.
