Uplyff, Inc took Poetic Power on the road and visited Mrs. Tyus's 8th grade class at Charles Dickens. We had a great time sharing poems and ideas and talking through the challenges that youth face. How and why the N-Word and B-Word are used were hot topics! Uplyff is grateful for the invite and hope to return soon.
"I wrote Ghost for all the young people who feel like they're suffocating, who feel like they're gasping for breath, exhausted from running for their lives, and sometimes FROM their lives. It's for both the traumatized and the triumphant." -Jason Reynolds
Congrats Ms. Marley!
