The Twin Poets - Our Work, Our Words... Spoken Word Presentation at 6:30pm in the College Union Building -The Junction on February 25, 2011
Twin brothers Al Mills and Nnamdi Chukwuocha are men who have found a mission: using poetry and social action to awaken the spirit of awareness buried deep within the souls of the downtrodden. They have performed with such legends as The Last Poets, Amiri Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, and Lamont Steptoe. They've appeared on HBO's Def Poetry Jam, at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Apollo Theater in New York, Philadelphia's Painted Bride, Delaware's Grand Opera House, and New Jersey's Atlantic City Uptown Complex.
For the past fifteen years these two wordsmiths have been warriors on the front lines of a ravaged community. They are following in the footsteps of their father, Civil Rights Activist William "Hicks" Anderson. Their art has become a tool for action, their words a source of hope and inspiration. Their boundless artistic energy and dedication to service are a model for all young people to follow.
