Jessica Care moore’s story reads like an old Hollywood discovery story. You know how it goes. Pretty girl from Kansas sits at the drugstore counter with a root beer float and becomes a star. Except this pretty girl was from Detroit and she went to Harlem. And instead of drinking a root beer float she was spitting verses. Verses so tough that she won five consecutive times on “It’s Showtime at the Apollo.”
She continued to make history by establishing Moore Black Press and publishing Saul William’s The Seventh Octave: Early Writings of Saul Williams before he became a star in Slam. Poetry has taken her all over the country, to Europe and to Africa. But for this internationally renowned poet, raised on Detroit’s northwest side, poetry is only one of her loves. The art world is her oyster and Renaissance Woman, jessica Care moore, regularly creates pearls. She recently sat down for a virtual chat with the Examiner.com.
