Darius Daughtry: And the Walls Came Tumbling

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 North Main Street Gainesville, FL USA (map)

Join us in welcoming educator, poet, and UF grad Darius Daughtry back to Gainesville!

Daughtry will be reading from his latest collection, And the Walls Came Tumbling. A vulnerable, introspective, and unapologetic collection that explores societal constructs - race, class, gender – and questions their existence in our lives.

The collection is available for purchase now at Third House and will also be available at the event.

Darius V. Daughtry fell in love with words at the age of six. It was then, that he used to write and draw his own comic books. While the pictures left a little to be desired, being able to paint pictures with words was a passion that soon began to blossom. Darius has been marrying the pen to the paper ever since.
Today, Darius is an accomplished poet, playwright, director, educator and community builder who believes in the transformative power of words. As the Founder and Artistic Director of Art Prevails Project, a performing arts organization dedicated to expanding cultural conversation through performance, arts education, and community engagement, Darius works diligently to use the arts as vehicle for social change. As an educator, Darius has created and directed creative art initiatives, including some in conjunction with NFL Hall-of-Famer, Jason Taylor, and actor/poet, Omari Hardwick. His work has impacted thousands of youth throughout South Florida.
