Poetic People Power


Invisible Chains: Inequality in America

On Wednesday, July 31, Poetic People Power will hold its 11th annual event. This year's show, Invisible Chains: Inequality in America, will premiere new poems about the various ways inequality advances some groups of people while limiting others to the detriment of all. Writers will showcase new works about their own experiences and thoughts on topics such as race, gender, and class. Poetic People Power creatively explores social and political topics, offering insight and possible solutions to issues that affect our everyday lives. This year’s poets include Tara Bracco, Nicole Goodwin, Karla Jackson-Brewer, Frank Antonio López, Scottt Raven, Shetal Shah, and Justin Woo.

Produced by Tara Bracco. Poetic People Power is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
