When Kenji first brought me to the Wall @ Central -- about two years ago -- it was exquisitely curated. It graced some of Boston and NYC's finest stencils, paste-ups and images. When I saw it this past week, it was a mess (though I do like this throw-up!) Something happened. Too bad!
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
