In 2014, Moonstone hosted over 80 poetry events and 32 history events (Charlotte Forten and The Underground Railroad in Philadelphia) featuring 359 artists with an audience of 3214 and launched The Moonstone Press.

In 2015:

  • Moonstone will present almost 100 Poetry Programs
  • Moonstone Press will publish more Poetry Books and Chapbooks
  • Moonstone will continue The Hidden History Project with programs on The Institute for Colored Youth and Elizabeth Taylor Greenfield
“Thanks so much for sharing your time and knowledge with my students today! Your presentation offered my students an excellent introduction to the Underground Railroad and the many courageous women and men who worked tirelessly in the name of freedom”

Aisha Madhi, Constitution High School-October 2014

“Sometimes, when I open your emails and read them, I feel such a profound relief and joy that Moonstone is close by and alive with the love for and need of poetry that so many of us feel. When I read your messages, I’m renewed in ways that I did not realize I needed.”

Mary Brownell, Springside School, Philadelphia-July 2014
