Ahmariah Jackson is ANON The Griot, nestled somewhere between the raucous ideology of Gil Scott Heron and the subtle subversion of James Baldwin. Words are his sword and shield. He views education as a noble revolution and values the holistic growth of students over any standardized assessment. He re-invented the poetry club and dubbed it “The Griot Circle,” where he fosters empowerment through expression. He is an emcee and devotee of Hip Hop as a culture, movement, and music and folds all his passions into the schoolhouse.
