Introducing Shamoria “Mori” Johnson


Welcome to the Team, Shamoria “Mori” Johnson! Mori is one of our newest Journalists who is excited to bring you various stories across our Diaspora.



Greetings,


I am Shamoria “Mori” Johnson, a first-year English major at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. I am excited to be joining The Black Agenda’s team of journalists as it has always been a passion of mine to not only write, but write about Black-centric themes.


Growing up, as an avid reader with a love for literature, I always felt underrepresented in the media whether that be books, movies, tv, even in the news. As I began to hone my skills as a writer and create my own pieces of work, I vowed to write for the little Black girl in me that craved a character that looked like her, or for the issues she has to deal with to at least be addressed.


I am currently working on a fantasy novel, Mystics (Sera Fox, a queer black girl with fire powers, has to travel across the kingdom to find other hidden Mystics to fulfill a prophecy and unlock magic.), that I hope to be completed and begin editing/publishing by the end of this year.


Through The Black Agenda, I hope to expand my horizons from purely fictional writing to include a journalist's perspective. I imagine my works will mainly consist of topics relating to Afrodiasporic Literature/Film/Music, Black Women, Black LGBTQ+, Education, and Pop Culture. Conversations regarding Black artists of all sorts such as musicians, painters, writers, etc will be had as a goal of mine this year is to consume more media created by members of my community.


I’m looking forward to producing some fun and interesting articles this coming season :)
