On Friday March 11th, Williamsburg was a buzz with poets and artists ready to wow the eager crowd. Papo ‘Swiggity’ Santiago and George ‘Urban Jobaro’ Torres, creator of Sofrito For Your Soul (an online social networking blog for the hippest Latinos in the city) partnered to bring their fans more of what they love and a few other surprises. What was to celebrate four years of placing the Spoken Word on stage, Capicu Poetry and Culture Showcase had outdone itself again.

Felipe Luciano, famed newscaster was the featured poet for the evening and it was no holds barred. This raw and intimate side of the legendary activist shook everyone to their very core.

Sponsored by big businesses like Best Buy, their program also carried so many wonderful smaller minority owned businesses within our diverse city.
