Saul Williams is one of the most celebrated and globally recognized American poets living today. After the release of his internationally acclaimed film, Slam (Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize and the Cannes Camera D’Or-1998), which he co-wrote and starred in, he has been the figure-head of the Slam Poetry movement and has been asked to read and perform his poetry in over 30 countries and more than 300 universities in the U.S. alone. Invitations to share his work have spanned from the White House, the Sydney Opera House, Lincoln Center, The Louvre, The Getty Center, Queen Elizabeth Hall, to countless schools, villages, community centers, and prisons around the world. He is the only poet to have published 4 books of poetry through MTV Books (Simon and Schuster) and has had his poems and works translated into several languages.
