BLACK GREEK POETS
Where Letters Make Words
BLACK GREEK POETS © is an international poetry network of college-educated creatives with a focus on members of historically Black Greek fraternities and sororities within the National Pan-Hellenic Council, otherwise known as the Divine 9. We seek to use our platform as a means to bridge poetry and the power of community engagement through fostering a safe space where artistic pursuit can be nourished and positively developed. BGP provides a slew of social, professional, and personal opportunities for individuals to challenge, discuss, inform, unpack, and grow constructively both within the craft and as leaders in today’s society. We strive for excellence in our self-expression by building meaningful connections amongst each other while upholding the values of which our grand organizations were founded upon; including service, sisterhood, brotherhood, and scholarship within the Black community. We believe that poems have power, and it is our responsibility to deliver this power by using our platform in order to command radical change and facilitate the home base of where letters make words.

This project is one of my personal favorites, since it challenged the notion of art’s power to alter people’s views and preconceptions. I was pretty happy to take part in this one, and still hear of the long-lasting influence it had on critics and fans. To learn more about this or any other projects, contact me now.

This project was extremely intricate and time consuming. From the initial consultation with the client and throughout the entire creative process, I carefully made sure the outcome reflected the client’s requests.
