The winner of three American Book Awards, including Lifetime Achievement, Miguel Algarín was a source of joy and wisdom in the community of poets, playwrights, and writers in which he served as leader and inspiration. Founder of the Nuyorican Poets Café, a venue described by Allen Ginsberg as “the most integrated place on the planet,” Miguel Algarín was not only an artist but community organizer and cultural activist par excellence.

Joining our celebration of Miguel Algarín will be Wajahat Ali, Nancy Mercado, Ishmael Reed as well as other friends and family of Nuyorican Poets Café, including theater impresario Rome Neal and visual artist Nitza Tufiño
