Description

NYC-based spoken word artists address the drastic changes that have recently impacted our political landscape. Confirmed poets include Advocate of Wordz, Jennifer Falu, Shanelle Gabriel, Jaime Lee Lewis, Saroya Marsh, and Pamela Sneed.

Over the last 40 years, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theatre and visual arts. The Cafe champions the use of poetry, jazz, theater, hip-hop, and spoken word as means of social empowerment for minority and underprivileged artists. Allen Ginsberg called the Cafe “the most integrated place on the planet.” Curated by Daniel Gallant in collaboration with Frank Hentschker.
