Listen To Inspiring Spoken Word Poetry Of Tshaka Campbell - WearePOETS


Sometimes you stumble on a piece of spoken word which defines the very nature of being of a poet. And 'wearePOETS' of Tshaka Campbell did just that.


Who is he

Originally from England, Tshaka moved to the United States at the ripe old age of 10. Raised on his father’s teachings of solidarity and brought up on the teachings of greats from Garvey ‘Pan-Africanism’ to William Churchill, he adopted his father’s intense love of language.

As a performer, Tshaka is recognized as an accomplished artist and performer and was voted one of the 25 people to know in San Francisco. Performance accolades include not only being a member of the 2004 Nuyorican Poetry National Poetry Slam Team and the 2006 Hollywood National Champion Slam Poetry team, but he also earned the Grand Champion title at the 2005 San Francisco and 2007 Hollywood Championships.

Similarly, his writing reads as well of the page as it does in his live performances. Tshaka has toured internationally, and has been featured at theatres from the legendary Apollo Theatre in New York to the poetry Café in London England; as well as numerous colleges, city fairs and creative venues throughout the United States.
