Kami Shalom

NC
Category: Arts & Culture
Award: Best Local Playwright
Year Won: 2014
Pick: Editor's Pick

“Playwright” is just one of Shalom’s many titles. She wrote and performs in the one-woman show Call Me Madam, which tells the story of the nation’s first female self-made millionaire, Madam C.J. Walker. After years of research, she debuted the play in 2013. And as a teacher involved in local programs and arts outlets like the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and ArtsTeach, Shalom shares her storytelling abilities in many ways.
