Black Chakra is an educator and poet. He has been recognized as one of the most dynamic poets in the spoken word community. As an educator he teaches poetry for students in elementary thru high school. Some of his students have since become Brave New Voices champions, National Poetry Slam Champions and published authors. He has most recently developed a six week poetry course for adult writers called the Mitus Touch. As a poet he has won many awards including National Poetry Slam, Southern Fried, Texas Grand Slam, Word War, Baltimore Grand Slam to only name a few.

Anthony McPherson battles bigotry with poems, viral videos, mixed media performances, & his biracial-black identity. The former NYC subway breakdancers poetry appears in the Lionsgate film Love Beats Rhymes, produced by RZA of Wu-Tang, as well as the Emmy-winning documentary Frameworks. McPherson is the Rustbelt Slam champion, the Inkslam champion twice over, the Individual World Poetry Slam 1st runner up, and has reached over ten million views since his first viral poem, All Lives Matter: 1800s Edition.
