“Poetry! What is it good for?”

“These are most talented and inspiring young men with a mission to expose social problems through poetry and music. This episode includes several examples of their work. Do not miss this one and check out The Peace Poets.”

“[PWIIGF] is a BCR series focusing on the committed and reverberating poetry of our times — produced by Chris Brandt of Fordham University, English Dept. — and member of Witness Against Torture. For this PWIIGF episode, Chris invited two members of the inspiring NYC activist performance group The Peace Poets — a “family born of Hip Hop, heart, and hope in New York City.” In 2014 Peace Poets song “I Can’t Breathe” protesting the murder of Eric Garner by the NYPD went viral when actor, Samuel L. Jackson, recorded himself singing I Can’t Breathe.”
