Words and rhythm collide on stage with real and raw stories of survival that speak to the universal heart of people. Two men from different walks of life share, with power and raw intensity, their trials and tribulations and eventual triumphs through spoken word poetry and honest storytelling.
Humor blends with poignant moments on (and off stage) taking audiences on a rollercoaster ride of emotion, one that opens their hearts and minds and them fills them with hope.
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.-
…I was at Lakeside Academy and attended the classes that were put on by Speak It Forward. I loved and appreciated what you did for me and my fellow peers. It has been almost a year and a half since I left and I’m doing much better now. The things you taught me I still use to this day. Thank you.-
I still wear my shirt from your first performance downtown Kalamazoo. Circa 2006 or so… You guys are the TRUTH!!!-
