Woodson Carpenter is a proud Black son of Appalachia—a son of its mountains, hollers, valleys, and rivers. He is a son of poets, singers, players, and thinkers. He is a son of rebellion and rebuilding, enslaved people and enslavers. His hope, in remaining always rooted in his home, heritage, and history, is to become an ever more beautiful embodiment of a dream deferred.


As a multidisciplinary artist, Woodson’s work is, at its core, a pursuit of beauty—often the sort that emerges from simple and mundane elements of life. Whether through music, poetry, or photography, he reflects the intersecting identities he and his village inhabit.
