Angelique Dina (she/they) is a first-generation American-Nigerian and Native American storyteller. She is currently pursuing her undergraduate studies in Black studies, Theatre, and Anthropology at Rhode Island College with plans to attain her Ph.D. Dina is also a McNair scholar and has dedicated her research to Black theatrical storytellers. Her research question “How do contemporary Black Theatre artists change the narrative within theatre/theatrical institutions and use their work to inform the audience about the Black experience” stems from her journey as a Black femme storyteller. Her methods of storytelling include acting, dance, spoken-word, and playwriting. She is the associate artistic director at Epic Theatre in Cranston, where she also performs. She has also worked and performed with Trinity Rep, The Gamm, and The Wilbury Theater. She thanks God, her ancestors, and her community of Black and Brown indigenous folks for helping her on her journey through the world of art, whiteness, and erasure.
