ABOUT MY GUEST

Author, Speaker, Performer and HUMANitarian Chenoa hARTherapy Murray liaises with cultures and diverse people, showing them how to overcome harmful cultural paradigms and realize their wildest dreams.    Her passion for community engagement led her to live and work in places near and far including  Mexico, Costa Rica and, most recently, South Africa.  She served in the  U.S. Peace Corps as an HIV/AIDS Health Education Specialist in rural  KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa (2015-2017).   

Upon returning to the U.S.,  Chenoa published her inaugural poetry book, "Whites Only", inspired by her time with the lovely Zulu community she served.  She has performed her poetry in venues including Atlanta's historic Apache Cafe, Divinity  Church International, the Social Security Administration Atlanta  Regional Office, the Velvet Note, the I Am Free Music Festival, the  International Centre for Women Playwrights, Fringe Benefits Theatre,  Bushfire Festival (Mbabane, eSwatini [formerly known as Swaziland]),  Great Bingo (Emnambithi/Ladysmith, South Africa), and Mama's Jus'  Jazzin' (eThekwini/Durban, South Africa). A portion of book proceeds goes towards Limehill, South Africa, the rural Zulu village where she spent her two-year assignment.  A "Whites Only" spoken word poetry album,  produced by Patrick Gregory Daniels, is slated for release in 2021.   Chenoa's latest endeavours include establishing a Dream Centre in  Limehill, South Africa.

As a proud graduate of Paine College and Morehouse School of  Medicine Master of Public Health Program, Chenoa is a staunch advocate of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) education.  She absolutely believes that God has blessed her to be a blessing to millions of people around the world.  What would make her happy,  however, is if you would stop reading about her life and go out there and live out your wildest dreams too!
