Speak Life Society Presents Urban Thoughts Spoken Word CD Release of "Kaleidoscope"- (Spoken Word CD Release). Urban Thoughts has consistently worked in Memphis, in his community, to spearhead poetry and spoken word. He founded The P.E.O.P.L.E which lead to the relaunch of slam poetry in Memphis after a near 20 year hiatus- serving as the first Slam Master of recent times. Numerous teams and slam masters have since continued and branded new teams expanding slam in Memphis. It has been a lot of sacrifice and delays to personal projects for the community. Now it is time for his project. The Kaleidoscope spoken word album is a poignant reflection of life as a man of color. I wanted to show the different emotional spaces that exist in my life and reveal some very personal struggles and success points that others may have been through as men.
