In 1971, Fannie Lou Hamer gave her famous speech, "Nobodys's Free Until Everybody's Free," 6 years later poet June Jordan wrote a poem dedicated to Fannie Lou, on the rooted love that fortifies even "against shotguns" and white terror. Over 40 years later we still believe poetry is a home for everybody who wants to be free; a place neither detached from nor surrendered to the landscapes of violence that are all around us. Maroon Fest plants "lillies filled to the very living full," to remind our communities that poetry is for nourishing the people---all of us finding our way home. Join us for a full day of festivities in Liberty City as we honor the elder poets of the Black Arts Movement for their commitment to truth-telling and who paved the way for our self-determination and creative excellence. The morning will begin with Yoga & Meditation, there will be local vendors and activities for the kids. Poems are intentional words and vibes. Join us as we listen to local musicians, DJ's, and poets that will open up for the legendary Last Poets, Sonia Sanchez, and Ntozake Shange. Listen to Emory Douglas of the Black Panther Party discuss the role of art and culture in our movements for change and freedom. Register today for free! LINK IN BIO

SAVE THE DATE. June 30th, 2018 “In a world that exists in intervals... begins, ends, and begins again in between 140 characters... Here we slow time just enough for you to truly feel. Right here, where everyone seems to be dying to get free, we live intentionally between the lines. Maroon Poetry Fest brings the dead, the dying, the barely living, and the thriving together. Here, we cross boundaries, induce thought, and search every crevice for whatever our collective truths may be.” - @initspurestform Presented by "Voices: Poetry for the People" We are looking for sponsors. If you are interested in being a vendor or sponsoring this event, please email us at: email@example.com
Our last workshop for our "Voices: Poetry for the People" series before we prepare for Maroon Poetry Festival in June. Reflecting on the poems we've read and wrote these past few months. Looking forward to all that's in store.
Meet our neighbor Rah Shaggy. He is most talented and all the vibes. We are grateful he was able to bless the stage 4/20. We couldnt do this without the support of our incredible neighbors and community. We honor them and give thanks. Blessings on Blessings. Shout out to the lovebirds cameo @thereminders ❤✊🏾❤
For the past year @kingmoosaproject has been calling in to participate in our weekly Voices: Poetry for the People workshop. This was the first time he was able to perform at Smoke Signals over the phone from a prison in Illinois. We want him home and free. Please follow his story and sign the petition to support his clemency. We need all our great minds locked up behind bars to know we love them and are still fighting for them.
Last night, Voices: Poetry for the People reflected on @smokesignalsmia’s open house. We honored the members of our crew that rocked the stage on Friday, we dove into the history of Maroon Colonies, and paid respects to Miami’s finest: Will Da Real One. • • • This session of the workshop ends soon and we’re hopping right into the planning of Maroon Poetry Festival for June. Keep a look out, and always a look back, cuz it’s hard to determine where we’re going without knowing where we come from.
