Nafeesa Monroe
Poet & Spoken Word Artist


“I didn’t happen to poetry and spoken word, poetry and spoken word happened to me.” – Nafeesa

“Spoken word poet Nafeesa Monroe bridges the gap between black and white consciousness with a dazzling delivery of finely honed wordplay–rhythmic revelations distilled from fearless self-examination and a life of challenges. An award-winning slam poet with both an academic and professional acting past, she’s a commanding presence in any room. Her work is the pure product of a high-gear mind and a healing heart.” – Kenneth Calhoun, Web Designer, Soul City Cafe.

Recently recognized as an emerging artist by Jewel and Soul City Cafe, Nafeesa’s career in poetry has taken on a life of it’s own. Performing at The Tommy Hilfiger Amphitheatre in Jones Beach, NY, as one of the opening acts for Jewel, is just an example. She is thankful for the blessing of being able to write, but moreso for those that listen, encourage, and support.
