Performing Art – Washington, DC

On August 28th, 1980, C. Thomas was born. He spent his youth under the care, wisdom, and protection of his mother, Margaret D. Thomas, who tragically died in 1991. C. was only ten years old when his life was turned upside down mentally, emotionally, and environmentally. Suddenly displaced, his new living environment subjected him and his autistic brother to many abuses. The experience ultimately culminated into words that he could not articulate as a boy, but would ultimately express on a microphone. C. quite effectively weaves his emotions into accessible works of art like the fibers of elaborate, yet elegant tapestries. His poetry became not only a cathartic experience for him, but for peers and strangers as well. C. first shared his poem "I" publicly in 2003. C. Thomas went on to win "The Editor’s Choice Award for Outstanding Poetry" that year, and again in 2005 for his poem "Irate Emotion." These successes inspired him to go on to publish a collection of his poetry with other talented artists, and motivated him to author now four of his own collections of poetry. No stranger to the stage, C. Thomas has graced numerous venues. Along his journey, C. has blasted his story at Studio 2001 Art Gallery, Busboys and Poets, Angelina College, Howard University, Prince George's Community College, Eleanor Roosevelt High School and Journey of Faith United Methodist Church just to name a few venues and was named a Pioneer of Poetry by NUSPA (National Underground Spoken Word Poetry Awards) in 2015. C. Thomas continues to raise his voice through his art for the benefit of Child Abuse Prevention Awareness, Black Lives Matter, SGL (Same Gender Loving) and the LGBT community which he is proud to be a part. He knows there are many other minds, bodies, and souls to be touched by his message. C. intends to continue to challenge mindsets and command stages. Ladies and gentleman, C. Thomas. ...more
