Off The Block contains poetry heavily influenced by the Harlem Renaissance as well as 14th century classic literature.  The combination of the two produces a concept rich in history as well as revolution.  The social commentary is a scope of real world issues from the urban American view-point. Poetry plus social commentary equals the formula for self-awareness and community growth.
