WORD WARRIORS III A powerful social commentary that explores the circumstances of young African American men in today’s society, and explores the concept of using one’s words as a weapon of peace versus guns and violence. We examine the power of the mighty power of the WORD from the perspectives of a group of young Black men who are poets, as well as community activists, educators, and noted elder poets – aka THE WORD WARRIOR GRIOTS – who speak wisdom from a historical point of view and who have been instrumental figures in the Civil Rights Movement and in shaking the halls of injustice with their weapons of words. WORD WARRIORS III sounds the alarm calling for an end to the cyclical epidemic of self- destruction that has attacked our black boys and young black men.
Written by Takia “Tizzi” Green & Lyah Beth LeFlore, WORD WARRIORS III was directed by Jamal Joseph & Takia “Tizzi” Green and produced by Takia “Tizzi” Green, Lyah Beth LeFlore, Walter Thurmond III, Jamal Joseph, and Kevin J. Nelson.
