The Get Lit Players

The Get Lit Players are a troupe of young poets who have burst to repute by spitting their own raw, fearless truth. These teens reach over 25,000 fellow students each year who find their voices through classic and spoken word poetry. They have performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center, the Hollywood Bowl, and even traveled to London. They were recently commissioned to introduce the United Nations’ Global Goals with their manifesto, “Project Everyone.” They are teaching Los Angeles, America, and the world that the voices of youth matter. Join the #LiteraryRiot at getlit.org. “Claim your poem, claim your life.”

The poets:

Kayland Turner, Brian Martinez, Xochitl Selarom, Gordon Ip, Walter Finnie, Marquesha Babers, Raul Herrera
