Miguel Piñero- Bimbo Rivas- Raul Santiago Sebazco Nuyorican Poets Cafe Class issues as well as themes of a political nature influenced some of the poetry. Many of the writers who were part of this scene were also part of the Civil Rights movement, the politics of the Black Panthers, the Young Lords, and they protested against the Vietnam War. While universal themes of love and daily life were expressed in the poetry, a good deal of the writing was poetry of resistance and of creating an identity. Nuyorican Poets Cafe The writers, poets, and playwrights who were part of this scene were young new talent including Lucky Cienfuegos, Miguel Pinero, Bimbo Rivas and Puerto Rican master poet Jorge Brandon, “El Coco Que Habla,”. The Nuyorican Poets Cafe first opened in September 1974 to provide a forum for the voices of the many poets living on the Lower East Side. Many of these new writers were from the working class. The Nuyorican Poets Cafe was an effort to broaden the audience and appeal for poetry. Nuyorican Poets Cafe Jose Sanchez De Jesus 801 07 8201
