Poetic People Power was founded by writer Tara Bracco in 2003 to create an ongoing project that combines poetry and activism. Each year, Poetic People Power commissions poems about social and political issues. For more info, please visit http://www.poeticpeoplepower.com/.
This show was titled "The Revolution Will Be..." and it focused on what protest and revolution means today. Inspired by world events and the Gil Scott-Heron poem "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," the poets creatively explored this topic and shared their new work with the audience.
