OPEN DOORS is a creative community of black and Latino men who largely use wheelchairs as the result of gun violence. Appearing as the Reality Poets at youth centers and other venues throughout the city, OPEN DOORS members are inspiring action for safer, more just communities. In 2019 the Reality Poets, with World Slam Finalist Joel François, will write a script based on true events from the poets’ lives. The play will be set in a barbershop, in an unspecific American city, and will feature original music by the Reality Poets and producer Pavel Bez, whose past projects include pop culture hits such as MTV’s Love & Hip Hop and Biggie Smalls’ Duets.
