Rannie McCants is a Harlem-based writer intimately involved in social and art activism. She became a semi-finalist for the 2010 Robert Fox Award for Young Writers and in 2012 she was selected to be a Mamie Earl Sells Scholar by the YWCA. In 2016, she was nominated and voted to be a Superior Performance Award recipient for her non-profit service to the McBurney YMCA.

She serves on the Board for the National Alumni Association for the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts and the Young Adult Board for the Riverside Church. Her unique background has led her to obtaining internships on television shows, like The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and America by the Numbers with Maria Hinojosa. Presently, Rannie is working on a full length play centered around identity and generational trauma.
