Featured Poet: Louis Conphliction

Whether ravaging sixteen bars, serenading love interests or igniting our inner most passions with poetry, you are bound to request Louis Conphliction's presence inside of your hearts, minds, and homes. St. Louis, MO was his first stage, being born and raised under the Arch; Louis was influenced by the dark beauty of St. Louis. Louis has decided to use his talents to create a movement around self-love, self-worth, self-respect and self-awareness to eclectic beats and empowering words.  

As a man of Alpha Phi Alpha, Louis is a man of his words and his dedication to his community runs deep. You can find Louis mentoring inner city youth through Urban Artist Alliance of Child Development. With Louis's help UAACD teaches children how to resort to words, creativity, and arts, instead of violence. When he's not doing that, he's touring and performing in the US/Puerto Rico & the Virgin Islands, he's also participating and winning Poetry/Spoken Word Slams all over the United States from St. Louis, to NYC to Philly and among those, Black On Black Rhyme- Atlanta's Slam and Southern Fried Poetry Slam 2012 & 2013.
