Welcome to my website! If your'e already here, you probably know of me in some way, shape, or form. My name is Amiyah King and I am a writer, researcher, activist and healer. I am the owner of OYÉ: Out Your Estimate.
I'm a proud native of Buffalo, New York--home of the Buffalo wing! I have served every community I've lived in and have even traveled to extend my service. I have served in Washington, DC, St.Louis, Missouri, Belle Glade, Florida and even Accra, Ghana.
My experience spans across many areas including government, education, communications, administration and policy making. Now, I am committed to being a voice for my people through writing, public speaking, and my business OYE: Our Your Estimate.
I am passionate about unearthing the complexities of racism, discrimination and injustice and how it impacts Black people in this country.
As a Black woman in America, I have experienced the effects of trauma firsthand, as well as the effects of holistic healing and the peace of mind it brings in a chaotic world. After my first spiritual awakening, I became certified in life coaching, meditation and mindfulness. That is why my business, OYE offers guided meditations and spiritual guidance for those seeking a deeper understanding of life.
It is my hope to one day become a champion for freedom known for engaging my people in tough conversations that matter.

WHAT I'M READING RIGHT NOW
Entertaining Race is a testament to Dyson’s consistent celebration of the outsized impact of African American culture and politics on this country. Black people were forced to entertain white people in slavery, have been forced to entertain the idea of race from the start, and must find entertaining ways to make race an object of national conversation. Dyson’s career embodies these and other ways of performing Blackness, and in these pages, ranging from 1991 to the present, he entertains race with his pen, voice and body
