Jacqueline Kaba-Harrison was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan along with her two younger brothers. She always loved to dance and roller skate and has continued to do so throughout her adulthood. After graduating high-school it was clear to her that she wanted a career in the helping field. As a result, she decided to attend Wayne State University where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work in 1996.
It was during that time she became introduced to African dance and culture which laid the foundation for the rebuilding of her self-esteem and self-confidence. The more she learned about West African culture through West African dance the more intrigued she became.
By 1998, she decided to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the Africana Studies Graduate Program at Clark Atlanta University. Although by 1999, she had a change of heart and decided to return to Social Work and graduated with her Master’s of Social Work in 2001.
In 2005, she decided to move to New York City to indulge in West African dance and culture, poetry readings and the night life of the city that never sleeps. While in New York City she began holding Sista circles and teaching West African dance to adults. She felt called to bring African American Women together to support and encourage one another.
While in New York, she met and married a native New Yorker. She now resides in Michigan with her husband and their eight-year-old son.
