Martikah Williams is an actor, singer, writer and director. She studied Theater and Music at the University at Albany, SUNY and later attended Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC. She is currently living in Harlem and will be graduating from Stella Adler’s Evening Conservatory in 2022. Martikah often shares her expertise in educational settings with youth including programs at Syracuse Stage and 100 Black Men of Syracuse. While finding success in working for established organizations, Martikah is most proud of her efforts in building the Black Artist Collective CNY alongside brilliant artists and art enthusiasts. As Co-Founder and Executive Team Member Martikah works as an advocate, organizer, grant writer and performing artist. She is fully committed to the organization’s mission to create safe spaces for Black and Brown individuals who are looking to pursue a career in the arts. Her hope is that through her work on and off stage she will inspire the underrepresented as well as encourage dialogue about intentionally creating more opportunities for BIPOC and women artists.
