About Sheila Sullivan
Sheila Sullivan is a native of Cleveland, Ohio and the founder of Passin Knowledge LLC, an empowerment organization for women and girls. Sheila is also the author of "A Woman's Pain, on the way to being...," a poetry book published in 2005. Ohio native Jamele Wright, Sr. has been involved in the arts since early childhood. He has been involved in music, poetry, dance, and visual arts. In March 1993 Jamele relocated to Atlanta, GA. At the age of 32, Jamele rediscovered poetry, and began competing and performing spoken word. The poetry caused him to return to his first love, painting. In 1995 Jamele opened the Neo Renaissance Art House exhibiting many Atlanta artists. His goal was to represent artists that did not have representation, and to create young collectors. After leaving the gallery he began painting seriously. Mr. Wright's most recent exhibition, Kukumbuka Kifo (to remember the dead) is centered on the idea of African items of power. Jamele is currently majoring in Art History at Georgia State University.
