Youth Speaks’ Brave New Voices College Tour is an amalgam of the brightest college aged performance poets from the San Francisco Bay.
Between the ages of 18 and 25, each member has gathered attention in the national arena, from showcases on HBO’s Def Poetry, to feature articles in Teen People and Newsweek. These poets are included in the tour not only for their acclaim, but for their ability to affect the frighteningly stagnated political climate. They don’t just write. They push the burgeoning future aesthetics in literature and theatre. The Brave New Voices College Tour brandishes both Hip Hop sensibility and immaculate writing. The poets aim to unnerve and electrify college students ever slanted towards apathy.
After all, who’s better to instigate students to movement than a crew of their verbally gifted peers?
