Atlas The Poet
Atlas, the Poet started performing poetry as a way to define and express himself. He noticed the unfair perception of black youth within the media. In addition, how his community outcasted him for enjoying “white” things, such as reading and writing. Since then, he has made a commitment to changing the perception of education for youth, and to speak on the social discrepancies and injustices that are prevalent in society. Coming from humble beginnings in Erie, Pa, Atlas plans to use his voice and his truths for the greater good of those who have not, and get lost in the shuffle. Atlas has performed in a multitude of cities throughout the country from: Dayton, Philadelphia, Indianapolis and Boston, to name a few.
