Poetry from K.C. Fontaine

Explained Nation

Why would a young middle-class Artist take to the streets? I know the concept does not register with the Black professional class; hence much of my present reluctance to engage that demographic stems from the fact.

However the fact remains, also, that I chose the streets (for awhile) simply to learn. Academic learning, valued as it is, has limits; and I reached the point, within myself, where I needed to transcend (intellectually) further.

One thought on “Poetry from K.C. Fontaine”

  1. “K.C. Fontaine points to class differences within the African-American community in the United States and how he felt the need to communicate directly with ordinary people by taking his work to the streets, and then the need to explain to the rest of his audience why he took that route.”
