We are grateful for the support of Chuck Perkins Owner of Café Istanbul & Fierce Poet
New Orleans has a growing number of African and Latin American Wordsmiths crafting some of the most engaging verse that addresses social justice concerns, and this "one-day" festival launches during April Poetry Month in 2023 to celebrate these brilliant Poets of Color in the Crescent City.
The event will also feature musicians that have been part of the TEATRO SIN FRONTERAS Latin Late Night Series.
