Writer and professor Furaha Henry-Jones has taught in public high schools and prisons, GED programs and college courses, charter schools for out-of-school youth, and migrant education programs to name a few.

She has since become the Sinclair Poet Laureate and a recipient of the Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award for Poetry. Her theatre work has included voice overs, narration, poetry performance, stage management and acting for various productions including, but not limited to Poetry at Durban Playhouse, The Signature Poetic Medley Show, A Song for Coretta, and One Sunday in Birmingham, Harriet: Navigation, Live and Thrive and Four Women: A Tribute to Nina Simone and the Black Arts Movement. Additionally, she has been a speaker for the University of Dayton Global Voices Symposium, a Dayton TEDx speaker, a featured presenter at University of Dayton Lit Fest, Dayton Art Institute, Antioch College’s Herndon Gallery and Coretta Scott King Center as well as a presenter at the Community College Humanities Association 2018 Conference in Baltimore and, League of Innovation 2019 Conference in New York.
