Renika's vibrant spirit is one thing people tend to remember about her. Shedding and sharing light and finding joy despite ones' circumstances are things Renika lives by. Everything she's passionate about involves social awareness, justice, strong women, and African American culture.  She has made her art her activism thanks to the theatre community she has found in New York City. The arts community in Harlem, specifically, has given a home to her voice, her art, her activism, and her joy. 

Matthew 5:14

"an underused Renika Williams"-

Theatremania, Zachary Stewart

"the volatile family dynamics might suggest Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie," with a gender-reversed gentleman caller (that would be Renika Williams' soothing Chantel)"-

New York Times, Sarah Krulwich 

"Renika Williams inhabits the bi-sexual Chantel with sensitivity, registering the fear and fearlessness co-existing in her character's mind." -Curtain Up, Elyse Sommer

"Renika Williams does very well by Chantel, who, struggling to understand her feelings, alternates between ghosting her friends and bailing them out." - Lighting and Sound America, David Barbour

"And there are solid turns from Renika Williams as 'Helen Robinson'.

"In a cast full of consummate professionals, Williams' debut with Cincy Shakes keeps pace with the heavies, even shines." - Erica Reid, CityBeat
