Panama Soweto is a performance writer, recording artist and educator. Channeling his rollercoaster performances as a spoken word artist, his lecture is a hybrid of storytelling and mentoring.
Soweto is also a 2006 National Poetry Slam Champion. He is the co-founder of Slam Nuba, the 2011 National Poetry Slam Champions. The YouTube performance of his poem, Scott, is currently taught in schools in The U.S. and around the world.
Panama challenges ideas about bullying, single-parenthood, sexual abuse, self-advocacy, and discrimination through his mastery of spoken word.
Literary bloggers have called his work, “transformative,” and “inspiring.” His work has been featured on National Public Radio (NPR), The HuffingtonPost.com, and most recently as a speaker for TEDXCSU.
In addition to spoken word performance, Panama Soweto hosts orientation, diversity, leadership workshops and more.
