Nhawndie Smith

Black Youth Project 100


Nhawndie Smith (they/them) is a young Black, gender-fluid carebear that deeply loves their people. They are from many homes across the South & currently reside in the “Bull City” Durham, North Carolina. Nhawndie entered the movement during the emergence of the Movement for Black Lives. Through this movement network & the leadership within it they grew as a student of the Black Radical Tradition. They are committed to a Black Queer Feminist praxis that stewards the leadership of more resilient strategists throughout our organizing ecosystems. You can link with them at
