Lyricist Society



Lyricist Society was created to increase student involvement in creative arts while promoting cultural awareness, the value of achievement and improving literacy through the use of hip hop and digital media.

Quan Neloms a teacher at the Frederick Douglass Academy in Detroit, created the Lyricist Society that launched in 2009 as an after-school activity. Since its inception, the Lyricist Society has evolved to include not only hip hop, but digital storytelling, video editing, creative writing, spoken word and live performances.
