He has been called “one of this generation’s leading voices.” Both EBONY magazine and The Root have identified him as one of the 100 most influential African Americans in the nation. In 2018, he transitioned from his role as co-director of the Dream Defenders and now travels the country training and organizing where “the movement” hasn’t touched.

Aja Monet is a Caribbean-American poet, performer, and educator awarded the legendary Nuyorican Poet’s Café Grand Slam title and internationally recognized for combining her spellbound voice and vivid poetic imagery on stage. In 2018, Aja Monet’s first full collection of poetry, My Mother Was a Freedom Fighter, was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work. She will sign copies of her book after the program.

You can learn more about both speakers, as well as Smoke Signals and the Dream Defenders at the links below. You can also see Aja and phil giving a recent Ted Talk on “The Power of Art as Organizing.”
