The Ultimate Warrior: P.O.E.T. Blaq Ice

You chose early on to use your extraordinary talents for good and to uplift others in your community at the same time. Why was it important for you to create P.O.E.T over 2 decades ago?

P.O.E.T. Organization

P.O.E.T, my brain child, was developed out of a need. I sat in so many boring presentations in high school that when I finally saw a good one, I asked myself, “Why don’t these presenters understand what we wanna see and hear?” As a result, I developed an organization that would fill the void of many school children in my neighborhood at that time, an edutainment program. Entertainment became the perfect way to enter into the hearts of the listening audience and from that point it is easier to educate, motivate and inspire.

What do you feel is one of the biggest accomplishments your organization has made to date?

My life is a life of sacrifice, from P.O.E.T in ‘90, to opening the 1st of 10 businesses in my community in ‘93, to running for political office in Chicago in the 2001, 2003 and 2007 elections, I have always served my community. If I could save the life of at least 1 child, then my living is not in vain. This is the reward for my service, LIFE. This is why there must be sacrifice, LIFE. This is why the only time I’m interested in selling out is when I throw shows, there is too much at stake.
