Spoken word artist Joshua Brandon Bennett was born in Yonkers, New York, he graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010, then earned a Masters of Arts Scholarship from the University of Warwick, in UK.
Combining refined writing with breath-taking performances, he managed to land shows like the Sundance Film Festival, the Kennedy Center's 'American Playlist' and, wait for this one, President Obama's 'Evening of Poetry and Music' at the White House.
We followed Josh as he revisited his old campus to give something back and inspire those who inspired him.
