This event will bring together high school students with local East Bay poets and homeless poets. Special guests include Paradise Freejahlove, Karla Brundage, and Kevin Fagan.
This is an opportunity to foster connections between people of diverse backgrounds with unique stories to tell. Poetry possesses a power of unification that few other art forms do, and this event will focus on the importance of human connection in the face of oppression. Everyone is welcome at this free event.
Rebecca Scharlach, a high school student from The Athenian School (Danville, CA) is hosting this event in conjunction with The Future Leaders’ Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enabling teenagers to pursue their dreams.
