About

​Eboni Flowers is a New York City-based performer, voice actor, and teaching artist who considers herself an EDUtainer and ARTivist.
In her time as an actress and teaching artist, she has shared her work with audiences on Broadway, Off-Broadway, (and-off-off-Broadway), in regional theaters, at schools across the country, at Rikers Island prison, homeless shelters, as well as in television, film, commercials, audiobooks and everywhere in between!

 

Her journey into audiobooks blessed her with surprising success during the pandemic. As a co-narrator on REEL by Kennedy Ryan, Eboni and the team made history as the first writer and narrators of color to ever win an AUDIE Award in the Best Romance audiobook category. 

Regardless of the stage or the size of the spotlight, the work that she has been most proud of has made an impact by addressing social justice issues, sparking dialogue, and inspiring audiences to connect, feel, laugh, and heal.

In 2016, Flowers co-created a community outreach program called Progeny Project, and successfully launched the first endeavor, Nhappi Hour, at various local bars and bookstores in Harlem.  Following the mission to "cultivate community, one conversation at a time", the Nhappi Hour event uses various creative tools to facilitate group dialogue on topics related to romantic relationships, based in constructive communication & productive collaboration.

 

Background

Eboni's family hails from Letohatchee and Montgomery, Alabama, but most of her childhood was split between San Diego and Atlanta. If you ask her though, she'll probably say she's from the ATL, because that's where she found her heart's beat— deep in the rhythms of trap music while attending Tri-Cities High School and Clark Atlanta University (and later, the University of Alabama- haaay Master's degree!) in the beautiful "dirty south". 
When she's not working, Eboni likes to say she's "regular-degular". She is a pro-God, pro-Black, body positive, sex positive, mind-ya-business-and-live-your-best-life--just-don't-hurt-nobody, judgment-free-zone type of chick. She enjoys gut-bustin' laughs, home-making, creative craft projects, photography, gardening with her neighbors, QT with her partner, thrifting for vintage finds, long walks with Outkast blasting in her Airpods.

Oh, and desserts, anywhere, everywhere (and all at once, if she could).  


She relishes trips "home" to spend time with her parents on their chicken farm, and with her 5 sisters and 12 nieces and nephews! Lately she's really into deepening her sustainable living practices, and summoning her inner wild-woman survivalist while binge-watching seasons of ALONE or Naked and Afraid.

 

Eboni is humbly thankful for the ancestors, the magic, the journey on this rock, and the genuine, authentic connections.


Stay tuned! ​
