Mansa L Bey is a Moorish- American Poet and Mixed Media Folk Artist from Cleveland, Ohio. Centering the experience and expressions of identity and indigeneity- Bey's passion for poetry on the page, the oral tradition of griot style spoken word and visual poetry converge to display a body of work that is emblematic of the connection between the cosmos and the community.

In 2015 Mansa worked to help create Love Lunes Over Buckeye, a literary art project unique to the Buckeye community, combining poetry and hand-painted signage to convey a message of love, hope, and inspiration through neighborhood togetherness. The project paired spoken word poet Mansa L. Bey with the visual art firm Little Jacket and sign painting artist Alan Giberson to create a series of hand-painted “Lune” poems along the Buckeye Road commercial district.
