In the Beginning there was the idea,
that love was on short supply.
The solution was to create a platform for all to stand
Spoken Word Affecting generations
Sankofa Reach up, reach back by engaging in reflexion in action
when the words hit your soul, you feel no pain
They make your skin feel like your dancing in the rain
As an Artist my goal is to establish a space where it feels great to be yourself. A quote I once heard that I live my life by ” Malcolm X and Martin Luther king jr were spoken word artist, Maya Angelou is a poet. I lead classes geared around making more spoken word artist. To teach them that words not guns have both the ability to build and to destroy. So I bring poetry to those who need it most . Everybody.
I mean Everyone
