We ran into Saint Lucian poet Kensley Charlemagne at Baywalk Mall. He was kind enough to share with us not only his poetry but also his plan to organise 100 Thousand Poets for Change Saint Lucia event.
Kensley Charlemagne writes beautiful poetry and he seems to have poems on stock for just any soul. You do not have to be a poetry fan to enjoy reading them – they are gentle yet straightforward and to the point.
He has now embarked on an ambitious journey to participate in 100 Thousand Poets for Change by organising Saint Lucia event of this global demonstration/celebration of poetry to promote serious social, environmental, and political change.
On September 24, 2016 poets, musicians and artists around the world will be organising poetry readings, music and dance performances focused on issues of peace, justice, and sustainability. The event will offer an opportunity for a peaceful global discussion on issues such as war, global warming, poverty, racism, gender inequality, homelessness, gun violence, police brutality, lack of affordable medical care, censorship, and animal cruelty. Individual organisers are free to choose the specific topic and focus of their local event. Kensley wisely chose the topic of RAPE, sadly all too common gruesome act in beautiful Saint Lucia.
