“Hi, I graduated from high school at Kalamazoo Central 3 years ago…I just wanted to let you know that lately, whenever I need something empowering, I listen to your words. Since graduating I’ve moved to New York and I’ve been sharing your words and stories here and you’ve got many fans here now. I hope you’re both doing well, and I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you.”Bridin Clements
As a thank you to those who have supported us through 10 years of writing and performing original spoken word poetry, we’ve shared these 100 mesages of hope as free downloads, to challenge and inspire all who here them.
Each week for the next year we will select and release 2 poems about triumph over the past. These will be a collection of poems from us as well as collaborative artists. You can collaborate on this project. Send us your own spoken word poems on Youtube or Vimeo and tag them #100poemsforhope
