Multazem (Multy) Oliver is a senior at Duke University studying Public Policy, Human Rights and Theater Studies. She has always had a vested interest in the arts and how the arts can be used as a method of social change. Through her studies she has been able to take a close look at the intersections between arts accessibility and the positive impact arts education can have on minority communities and low-income youth. Multy’s work with Hayti has furthered her appreciation for having culturally relevant creative outlets for black communities in particular, and she can’t wait to continue advocating for the importance of Hayti and similar cultural centers.
