Distinguished Visitor Lesle Honore, poet

Leslé Honoré is a Blaxican Poet who began writing in grammar school and has never stopped. She attended Xavier University in New Orleans studying English Literature where she was editor of Xavier's literary journal, New Voices. Leslé has lived in Chicago for almost 18 years and has worked in the non profit field for almost twenty years, advocating for under-served youth. Poetry has always been how Leslé has expressed herself. Focusing mainly on social injustice, she hopes that through her work she can help give voices to people who are often silenced, unheard and feel invisible. Leslé believes HBCUs, Tacos and Gumbo without kale can save the world.
