According to Upstate poet and spoken word artist, Moody Black," Poetry is an opportunity to set yourself free.  It's a therapeutic release."  Moody told us that poetry gives him the opportunity to release his thoughts and feelings and whatever he is going through and he is committed to helping others have the same opportunity.  With his initiative, Making Words Move, he goes into schools helping students learn to write poetry.  Another way that Moody helps other enjoy the opportunities of poetry is with his work with Greenville's Coffee Underground.  Every Sunday at Coffee Underground, he hosts poetry open mics and once a month, they have a Poetry Slam.
