Details:
Hailed as a “truth-telling visionary” by Brass Magazine and a “lyrical prophet” by the Caymanian Compass, CARLOS ANDRÉS GÓMEZ is a leading voice at the vanguard of the oral poetry movement. The iconic slam poet, actor, and playwright is a Russell Simmons’ HBO Def Poet and 2006 International Poetry Slam Champion. A proud Latino and native New Yorker, Carlos co-stars in Spike Lee’s #1 blockbuster smash hit film “INSIDE MAN” with a leading role alongside Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, and Clive Owen.

Called a “must-see” and given five out of five stars by Hairline Magazine in England, he has performed at over 100 colleges and universities and toured across North America, Europe, the Caribbean, and Africa. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including High Desert Voices (The Wordsmith Press, 2006), The New York Times, Rattle: Poetry for the 21st Century (Scarecrow Press, 2007), AWOL Magazine, Speakeasy Anthology (University of Pennsylvania, 2002), Legendary Anthology: Stories We Tell Today, Stories Our Children Will Tell Tomorrow (Sacred Fools Press, 2008), Timeout New York, and the forthcoming Barbershop Chronicles.

Carlos won a Rocky Mountain Emmy® Award for his starring role in the groundbreaking “Respect Yourself” television spots. His first poetry CD was named Spoken Word Album of the Year at the 2006 L.A. Music Awards. Always seeking to push artistic boundaries, Carlos recently collaborated with Tony Award-winning tap dance legend Savion Glover at The Town Hall on Broadway. Their much lauded performance, featured as part of the Nuyorican Poets Café’s “Aloud and Alive at 35” anniversary show, received a standing ovation from the sold-out audience.

A former social worker and teacher in Harlem, the South Bronx and Philadelphia, Carlos regularly conducts workshops and lectures on critical social and political issues. Youth empowerment, the fight against HIV/AIDS, and the unjust penal system in the United States remain central to his life’s work.
