Every Child is Born a Poet (2002)

About Every Child is Born a Poet

Before acclaimed author Piri Thomas could write his famous novel “Down These Mean Streets”, he had to live on them. This biopic shows how his childhood in Spanish Harlem, a six-year prison stint and other key events shaped his artistic development. The film combines rarely seen footage, still photos and mixed-media images to illustrate Thomas’s life and an influential career that focused on revealing the injustices of poverty and racism.
