Artist, poet, writer and producer Danny Simmons talks about the success of the HBO Television series Def Poetry Jam and the motivation for presenting the Def Poetry Jam Reunion. The program will be held at the newly opened My Image Studios (MIST Harlem) at 46 West 116th Street in Harlem on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 8 PM. “When you do something that’s really deep from your heart, it connects with people on a spiritual level,” says Simmons. “And the poetry that is being said by this generation, even previous generations of poets, connect to people their needs, their wants, their desires, their anger and their fears.”
