From Gil Scott-Heron, Sonia Sanchez and the Last Poets to Slick Rick, Queen Latifah and Public Enemy. Amiri Baraka and Nikki Giovanni to Biggie Smalls and Nicki Minaj. Whether you prefer the blues of Hughes and Gibson, or the beats of Ginsberg, Fresh and Rahzel. If you root for battle raps from the likes of BDP, Lauryn Hill and Immortal Technique or the slam poetics of Beau Sia, Patricia Smith and Saul Williams -- you know Poets won’t stop building new worlds with the Word. Workshop verse for the page and the stage. Research, write, record, produce and perform original work and the verse of inspiring underground wordsmiths, while critically examining texts by and about legends from the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts Movement and the Hip Hop Generation we are shaping here and now. (Prerequisite: read or perform 2-3 minutes of an original or "classic" of your choice.)
