Social Media Director
Alicia Foxworth (Member, Sag-Aftra) is an artist and communications professional in Brooklyn, New York. She began her love of storytelling on the brownstone steps of Brooklyn as a child where she sat with her father after work to read the newspaper (he the news and she the comics). Talks were full of jokes and of course, a good story. It became a tradition, enjoyed with neighbors, teaching her to appreciate the wonder of one’s imagination, growing up in an urban neighborhood. Those stories were her first glimpse into varied life experiences, diverse characters and the bond of family. Hearing tales from her father and now sharing her own, she inspires, amuses and comforts others, just as if she were still sitting on the brownstone steps.
Alicia began her artistic career as a performer on stage, working with the Afrikan Women’s Repertory, the Ujamaa Black Theater and at Theater for the New City to name a few. Over the years, she began to put pen to paper and the characters of her childhood became alive again. To date, Alicia has produced several full-length stageplays, readings and short plays for festivals, and workshops at commercial theaters and non-profit organizations, cultivating relationships with community based organizations.
Presently, Alicia works with the Uptown Playwrights Workshop in Harlem, New York to share and receive feedback on new pages to her stories for the stage. The work she has developed has been successfuly submitted to several festivals including the National Black Theater Festival readers’ theatre in Winston-Salem, North Caolina as well as the Weeksville Historical Society in Brooklyn, New York.
Writing Projects include Income Property, ROOMMATES, Family Business and Ghost Writer. Alicia has also penned her first short film, Bedford Kids, entertaining audiences through themes that demonstrate how people of different backgrounds can be more powerful when they embrace their common humanity. Most recently, her play, Ghost Writer placed in the semi-finals for the Eugene O’Neill’s National Playwrights Conference, making the top 200 of more than 1400 submissions in 2019.
Community projects include includes talk hosting and producing for local cable and coordinating the movie night at her local church for children in the community.
She is formerly an adjunct instructor for the School of New Resources at the College of New Rochelle’s Brooklyn campus and the City University of New York at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, New York.
Alicia Foxworth holds a Masters of Business Administration in Media Communications and Marketing from Fordham University and a Bachelor’s degree from Virginia State University in Marketing Management. Additional studies include Einhorn School of Performing Arts at Primary Stages with Michelle Bossy and TCA Studios with Ward Nixon in New York City.
