TESTIMONIALS ABOUT ‘RUNNING: AMOK’
“The play was funny, poignant, and emotional. It is extremely well-written and you definitely hear Khadijah telling her own very personal story as a mom and creative woman through the dialogue. The songs were great and the actors/singers were all amazing, across the board. I can definitely see this small community production growing and going above and beyond what anybody in the audience could realize. I am so glad I was able to attend such an awesome performance.”CaShawn Thompson, Dirty, Pretty Thangs
“Playwright Khadijah Ali Coleman is a writer after my own heart because she penned a piece tackling issues we mothers tend to keep to ourselves. I applaud her and the cast for bringing this subject matter to the forefront.”Seshat Walker, The General Store

Chenyelu Bomani, musician/poet
Liberated Muse is a place I would call a home to come to for real talk… it is known for reaching out and reaching new heights with harmony love and friendship behind it. Always full of information for those who wanted a place to go. It’s the essence of sister and brotherhood. Real life Real People Entrepreneurship Grand Entertainment and a Supportive Service that gives motavation to anyone who needs that push. I will miss you dearly. You have been always giving to everyone here and always giving back to the community. I somehow believe this is not the end. I do believe it’s just a small door closing for something bigger to come.
Wow, Liberated Muse is one of the few places that actually gives an artist the opportunity to perform at an array of different venues and events. I met some wonderful artist because of Liberated Muse and a few good friends as well… Thanks for being just what an Artists needs :=)
Much Creative Love
Mahoganee, singer/community activist
You have given me so much support from day one. Liberated Muse is/was one of my cyber-homes where I can go, and truly be myself, and let my hair down (what little I have left).
I felt truly honored when you created a group here on LM based on what I was doing with the Literary Arts Festival. Without your help, who knows how far the Movement would have gotten at this point? I feel truly blessed to have known everyone here, and be invited to become a part of this site. I continue to enjoy the Capital Hip Hop Soul Festival, and will continue to support it, and do what I can to help it grow. Count me in for any future Liberated Muse Productions projects!!!! I will greatly miss my cyber-home. You hard work is definitely appreciated!!!!
–Kevin Sabio, writer
Every time I logged on to Liberated Muse I found engaging topics and resources from like-minded artists from around the world. Liberated Muse also inspired me to begin creating and performing my original music again. I am sad to see the Liberated Muse social network go. Thank you for the opportunities.
Liberated Muse is so Cool…..so active in promoting Art. I wish there was something/someone here in the Southern Delaware and Ocean City Beach Area doing what you do.
