The Nuyorican Poets Cafe is using the shutdown to amplify more voices
Here's how the East Village cultural center is adapting to the current times.

For more than four decades, New Yorkers have been lining up down the block to get into the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. The East Village institution is a hot spot for poetry and spoken word primarily by and for the Black and Latinx communities.
But these days, Friday nights on the block are pretty desolate. When COVID-19 hit in mid-March, the Cafe, which regularly hosts poetry slams, open mics, Latin Jazz and Hip-Hop concerts, theatrical performances, educational programs, and visual art exhibits, had to shut its East Third Street doors and pivot to online-only programming for the first time. The unprecedented closure has majorly affected the cultural gem, but despite that, its performers are anything but silent. Through all of this, the Cafe has found that moving online has offered even more intersectionality than ever before, its Executive Director Daniel Gallant says.
