Internet Cafe featuring Poetry, Jazz and Spoken Word, Coffee, herbal teas, sandwiches, salads and mouth watering pastries. Ms Sharron J Kennedy-Frost initiated the Poetry & Jazz Café for ten years in Public School 328, located at 330 Alabama Avenue in East New York Brooklyn. What started out as a math lesson turned into the Phillis Wheatley Poetry & Jazz Café. The purpose of the Café was to teach math in a memorable way, raise money for instruments and more importantly to introduce the students to the idea of entrepreneurship. The café was a success ( student operated, staff and community supported ). It was met with enthusiasm from the students, staff and community at large, After, four years of operation we had our first celebrity visit by Mr. Kurtis Blow. The ideal was so successful and heartwarming that it inspired the idea to for me to eventually open Word Up Cafe. The cafe raised enough money to purchase instruments and produce the PW Jazz Band. Phillis Wheatley Poetry & Jazz Cafe provided an atmosphere where students could showcase their talent and express their feelings in non-violent ways. The Poetry & Jazz Café has operated for over ten years in PS /IS 328 (330 Alabama ave.school.Inspired by the students of P.S./I.S. 328 and the people of the East New York, Brooklyn Word Up Cafe iNC is an an extension of the Phillis Wheatley Poetry & Jazz Cafe So those of you who are looking for a place to feed your mind , body and soul Word Up is it. a Community oriented
