    POETIC JUSTICE PRESENTS TANGUY "TITANG" EXUME AND KAGAN GOH

    Poetic Justice Returns! featuring TANGUY ‘TITANG’ EXUMÉ and KAGAN GOH with host, Franci Louann @ The Heritage Grill, Back Room - 477 Columbia Street, New Westminster - (604) 759-0819

    Tanguy “titang” Exumé is a young Haitian poet; passionate about writing. He arrived in Montreal in 1999 and has been residing in Vancouver since 2008. While living in Montreal, between the years of 2004 and 2007, far from his native land, he decided to put his pride, shame, joy, sadness and anger of being Haitian, onto paper. It is in this context that Haïti Parle (Haïti Speaks) was born; an allegorical dialogue between a man in exile and Haiti—adored mother and denied homeland. Haiti Parle later became a poetry slam show with Tanguy’s performances of spoken words and acoustic music. Now a French immersion teacher, he is inspired by the philosophical questionings of his students which he feels position him in a place of lifelong learning.
