Nuyorican Poets Cafe

Nuyorican Poets Cafe

With heavy hearts, we bid farewell to poet and visionary Miguel Algarín, founder of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. In his Lower East Side apartment, the Cafe was born as an outspoken and passionate collective of poets, musicians, theater artists and activists. Miguel was a brilliant poet, an influential professor and leader, and a supportive mentor who inspired and guided generations of artists. He edited popular anthologies of poetry and theater, helped launch the Nuyorican Literary movement and championed spoken word, hip hop and theater by Latinx and Black artists. The literary world owes Miguel a debt of gratitude. He will be greatly missed.
