As a result of a partnership between Syracuse Seeds of Peace and Diversity Dialogue at Fowler High School in Syracuse, NY, students from Fowler participated in a Spoken Word Poetry Slam on February 10, 2014. The Slam consisted of six presentations of five spoken word poems with themes ranging from personal struggles, journeys, and affirmations to community enlightenment and empowerment. In attendance were Principal James Palumbo; Teacher Erin Clarke, Diversity Dialogue Coordinator; Jose Cossa, Syracuse Seeds of Peace Coordinator; and student presenters and student guests.

Here are some of the poems rendered:
