WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT PAGES

 

"Pages exemplifies the ethos of busboys and poets - he is conscious, uplifting and thoughtful. His words are solidly chosen and impact the mind, body, and soul."  

- Andy Shallal, Owner & founder of Busboys and Poets

"Pages has a special gift with words. His delivery and style draws you in and you are sitting on the edge of your seat until he is finished speaking." 

- Etan Thomas, Former NBA Player Author, Voices of the Future, Fatherhood 

"Pages taught a series of poetry and spoken word workshops for both senior and youth groups. Through these workshops, students learned a new creative way to express their experiences, ideas, and views of the world around them. Pages has a unique and powerful way of guiding students to find their poetic voice.”

- Chanel Compton, Educational Director, Prince George's African American Museum & Cultural Center

"If young people are the ships moving poetry to the next shore, then Pages Matam is a mast. Provocative, Salient and Soaring, A poet worth knowing. Get your ticket and get on board!" 

- Sonya Renee Taylor, Performance Poet & Founder of The Body is Not An Apology
