All while learning about local American icons. There will be a poetry reading at 2PM by two local poets Carmellite Chamblin and Donald Vincent (Mr. Hip).
Carmellite Chamblin is a first generation born Haitian-American minoring in women’s study at MCPHS University. She
resides in Malden MA with a large collection of books she’s yet to touch, and a growing concern for the gradual gentrification of her city. Her most recent poems touch on unmasking the emotions behind loss and change. She enjoys writing, drawing, and hopes to one day own a tarantula and a bunny.
Donald Vincent also known as Mr. Hip is a poet, educator, and founder of le pamplemuse™, a multimedia content development platform for cruelty-free companies, and creator of online cooking segment, That’s So Vegan. Aside from writing and performing poetry and creating hip-hop music, Mr. Hip taught writing and literature courses at Emerson College in Boston. His poems have been published in a variety of different literary magazines and journals. His music can be found everywhere that music is sold and streamed. His passion is making others happy and he will be performing his work for Stewards of the Future to tickle everyone’s fancy.
