ROMEO IS BLEEDING
A decades-long turf war between Central and North Richmond gangs have created a looming atmosphere of danger and violence in Richmond, California. From North Richmond, Danté Clark seeks to end the violence through education and poetry. Clark applied his skills and passion to help create RAW Talent, a group of underprivileged youth using spoken word and slam poetry to address the unspoken real experiences and issues that plague their lives. In a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" that parallels his hometown's turf war, Clark hopes to inspire those around him to address and bring a voice to the internal and unspoken violence that encompass the residents' lives.
