Jordan Ealey is a writer, scholar, and artist. Hailing from Atlanta, now based in the DC-area, Jordan is currently a doctoral student in Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Maryland, where she studies black feminist theories and praxis, black performance theory, popular entertainment, musical theatre, and black girlhood studies. As a publicly engaged scholar, Jordan is the co-host and co-producer of Daughters of Lorraine, a podcast on black theatre from a black feminist lens, which is supported by HowlRound Theatre Commons. Jordan is a playwright; her work has been developed and/or produced with Horizon Theatre Company, Rorschach Theatre, and The Keegan Theatre, among others. 

When she is not doing schoolwork, working on her podcast, or at rehearsal, Jordan loves reading romance novels, watching all kinds of television shows, tending to her bullet journal, and watching YouTube videos.
