Talented spoken word street poet Luke R. Nephews, to show solidarity came by Bloombergville, on our 7th day. Luke is a member of PEACE POETS, an international organization that provides poetry workshops to youth and prisoners all around the world.

The Peace Poets outreach has spanned the globe including countries like Guatemala, Columbia, Haiti and India. They are based in Bronx, New York.

They came by to send a message as well as elevate the spirits of  Bloombergville’s citizens. According to Luke, “We use poetry and media to confront social injustice. Redefine minds to show people that they can be a part of the solution. Realizing the power that we have together.”
