"Speak Easy is my baby. Part open mic, part showcase, part home, part turn up, all respect and love and creativity and artistry and US. I came of poetic age during the era of Jahva House on Lakeshore Ave in Oakland Ca, and Mouth Off Wednesdays at the Air Lounge, also in Oakland. I sought out to create an environment that would give others what I received from my poetry homes. A safe haven. A place to call their own when they weren't sure they belonged anywhere else. A place to breathe deeply and freely when they had been constricted for so long. To speak, to laugh, to perform, to learn, to heal, to support, to survive, to escape, to BE."
