Poetic Just Us Poetry Slam!
I had the pleasure and honor of reading some of my poetry at Tracey Wells-Huggins poetry slam on Friday, June15, 2012! An inspiring event and one in which I was proud to participate. Tracey heads her own organization, Renewed Minds CDC, Inc. and regulrly hosts (along with some auwsome sponsors) community events to raise awareness of the ‘school to prison pipeline’ which kids fall into all too often.
Poetic Just Us: Our Voices Have Power!” was a marvelous event featuring: Micheal DeLeon from Steered Straight, Inc. I admire Micheal for focusing on steering rather than scaring youth straight! Thank you Micheal! Fear has no place in raising or guiding children and youth. Developing trust with adults in their lives will inspire and pull our youth into the net of care the united village can provide, and help steer our lonely, troubled, and abandoned youth to great things in their lives!
