EntityVerse is a literary-performance group based at Eastway Middle School in Charlotte, NC. Each week young artists craft stories and poems on topics ranging from race, gender, pop culture, to anything within their orbit. Most importantly the space is a sanctuary to unpack topics in a supportive environment. Over the course of five months, members participated in workshops and Q&As with local and nationally recognized artists. The product of their hard work is a mixtape (EntityVerse Volume. 1: Generation Z). The mixtape is not only a collection of art, reflections, and opinions, but will serve as a time capsule of teenage voices in East Charlotte.
Shout out to not only these young scholars for speaking their truth so eloquently and so early, but to their teacher Mr. Eddison Wilkinson for inspiring the leading voices of the next generation.
