Harold Green is an ever-evolving artist, with a fluidity that defies categorization. Known chiefly as a poet, Green weaves stories with passion and lyrical creativity that captivates audiences. He expands beyond the coffee house, spoken word crowd creating CDs, videos, and books; performing at festivals, rallies, and college campuses across the country; selling out major Chicago music venues; and even performing center stage at the inauguration of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. A writer beyond poetry, Green has written four full-length plays and starred in over a dozen. His first book, From Englewood, With Love, is a collection of poetry and photography celebrating his upbringing on Chicago’s South Side.
