About the author (2010)

Shake the Poet was born Richard White, quite some time ago in Brooklyn New York. Raised in Newark, New Jersey, Richard discovered his love for writing poetry by age 12. In his college years at Montclair State University, Richard was named 'Black Shakespeare' by friends who would listen to his poetry recitals. After September 11th 2001, Richard joined the US Army and was stationed in Fort Hood, TX. While in Texas, Richard discovered that he had landed in what seemed to be the Mecca of Spoken Word. Central Texas was a flowering world of poetry, filled with open mic venues and competitions. With new stages available and a cast of insightful and imaginative new friends Richard honed his talents and joined the ranks of National Slam Poets and elite spoken word artists from across the country.
