We are celebrating Women's History Month with poetry, perseverance and power. I've tapped some of the amazing poets that I met on the Clubhouse app and am excited to bring them to this platform to share their work. This episode is dedicated to all women, particularly the ancestry of the Black women highlighted in the poetry and experiences of the poets today - Duane Reid, Livia Kojo Alour, Tariq Saint Sankofa & Yours Truly.
Special shout outs to a few poetry rooms that I have been enjoying thus far on the app in case you are looking around: Poetry Palace and all of its weekly variations, The B Side, Poetry with Liv, Resistance Poetry and there are so many more. Next week, I’ll be the featured poet on Poetry Place’s Verbz and Vibes A.M. Open Mic with Michael Guinn and other amazing poets. Join us at 7:00am EST each week. Cheersssssss

David Bianchi, poet, actor, philanthropist, just to name a few, joins us on this episode to talk everything from making history in the NFT space, as the first spoken word performance poet to create an NFT. Unfamiliar with what an NFT is and how powerful of a currency it is? No worries, he shares all of the details during our conversation. But David doesn't just stop there. His "spinema" of "I Can't Breathe" has reached millions and has reshaped how we fuse poetry, art, cinema, social consciousness and our words into a true artform to make money, while impacting community. 100% of the proceeds of his "I Can't Breathe" piece will benefit The George Floyd Foundation and his aim is to raise $150K more dollars for non-profits by December 31, 2021 to pour into the communities that each "spinema" profits. In today's episode, COACHING leaves you with an exercise of "soul work" called The Circle of You. We look at limiting beliefs and relate them back to the power that our thoughts and our words have and how you may be able to look at them a bit differently. COCKTAILS celebrates the amazingness of who you are and reminds you of the affirmation that you are greatness where you stand. Own it and own the words that you say to yourself and to others. CONVERSATIONS are where you hear David Bianchi share stories of when he was young and how words shaped him, a bit of inspiration to leave us motivated to action, what he feels is a barrier that still faces him today and his 4 minute, 50 second, power piece of work called, "I Can't Breathe."
