Handmade Poetry Workshop Flyer, 1986

For Knight, poetry was something to be shared and which needed to become more democratized. Programs like the Free People’s Poetry Workshops were critical to him in sharing his experiences and wisdom. He often worked with incarcerated folks, acting as a mentor and pen pal, and he used these programs as safe spaces for up-and-coming poets to explore their art and their own personal growth.
