I came upon this in DUMBO earlier today. It was the first street art tribute I spotted to Sure (R.I.P.) Later, while heading from 14th St. to FIT's book store on 27th, I came upon quite a few sticker tributes. I will certainly miss SURE and his impeccable handstyle -- a part of my daily NYC visual landscape.
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.
