Biography

Julie Taiwo Oni is a Nigerian-American playwright and educator based in Los Angeles. Her writing is invested in expanding the narrative of Black experience and provoking performative exploration of intercultural misconceptions, particularly those related to the African diaspora.

As an educator, Oni teaches English composition, ESL, dramatic literature, and playwriting at Pepperdine University, where she is committed to championing international students and those of color and integrating a curriculum that voices experiences of otherness and encourages individual epiphany.

Her current research and writing deal with global experiences of Black albinism.
