Emanuel Xavier

Biography

Emanuel Xavier took the New York City spoken word scene by storm in 1996, quickly becoming one of the most significant voices to emerge from the neo-Nuyorican poetry movement. Following in the tradition of writers/performers like Miguel Piñero, Xavier captivated audiences with a fresh and poignant brand of art that celebrated sexuality, Latino heritage, and the often brutal streets of New York. He is the author of two collections of poetry, Pier Queen and Americano, and a novel Christ-Like.
