I’m coming  out  the house this weekend and I  can’t wait to hit this event.  It’s like a coming out  event  for Me, so many people  know of Me  but have never  Me. I’ve been out the  house recently more in Baltimore. This  past weekend  I had My second radio interview in two weeks to promote this site as well as My other  business ventures. I’ve been asked to come back and co-host on  March 31st.

LTAB And Baltimore Art Rising – A Day Of Poetic Youth Excellence

I had the opportunity  last month to attend the most amazing event, actually it was  two events held by the same entities on the same day. The people at Dewmore Baltimore  teamed up with Maryland  Institute College of Art (MICA) and put on two spectacular events. It was a big  day for Me and My son personally because My son was  being honored at one of the events.

LTAB

LTAB

We attended the LTAB ( Louder Than A Bomb) finals for middle and  high school before attending a book release event that My son was taking part in. The LTAB was amazing, I’ve written about  Dewmore Baltimore before, this local  group of poets give these kids a way to express themselves unlike I’ve ever heard from minds and hearts so young.

These children write their own  poems and  perform them  with  meticulous  execution. Some of the teens  brought tears to my eyes  in telling their life stories through their writing.

I had  shared a few videos from that  day below and more  are available on youtube. If you go through My videos you will find even more youth poets.


The  middle school and  high school LTAB events were separated by a book release event called Baltimore Art Rising.

Baltimore Art Rising

Baltimore Art Rising

Baltimore  Art Rising  is a poetry anthology  put together  jointly by  MICA and Dewmore Baltimore featuring the poetry of youth  under the age of 18. My  own  son was one  of those  youth represented in  Baltimore Art Rising and  we were so excited to be a part of it.

The set up was  really nice  plus they  set out a beautiful spread of appetizers and snacks. Each  student who had a poem published in the anthology also had their poem  turned into visual art and it was hung gallery style at MICA. The young poets had their poems turned into visual art and also  received a copy that visual version of their poem framed.

One of the  young women I recently introduced you to through the site was also one of the featured youth poets. You guys  remember  Mecca right? She was a judge for the  high school LTAB finals as well.

It was so wonderful  to watch the kids  all lit up and  beaming with pride as they walked up to accept their visual poems. I was such a proud parent. Spending the day with My son and  kids his age while listening to them speak about such  adult topics was eye opening. We’d like to fool ourselves into thinking they are children like we were, but they aren’t. The  world they are  growing up in is  so different than anything we experienced at their ages and they have to stories to back it up.

You know how you see someone on  the internet all the time, you admire their work, you love to see them shine but  never think you will meet them. I was  so excited to find out that Demont Pinder would be  painting live at Afram  this year.

You’ve seen his  work all over  but may not know who he is. He has a sweet job as the art director for  Raheem Devaughn but  he uses his talent in so many other ways. He does the historic Howard Theater and so much more.

At Afram  he  was offering  fans and new comers the opportunity to be a part of one of his paintings. You know I had to grab a  brush and join in. He  had outlined a very intricate piece and people had a chance to grab a paint brush and be a part of one of his masterpieces. I did this black part lol
