Josephus III has been for writing as long as he can remember, published for the first time in the fourth grade for an essay written about his father. Before he ever knew poetry as a performance art or a career, it was simply an outlet or an easy way to complete class assignments. Being able to capture personal thoughts, raw emotions and ideas on paper just seemed to come naturally. As a freshman at Clark Atlanta University, he was introduced formally to the open mic scene and his love for the art became more apparent. Upon transferring to North Carolina A&T S.U., he co-founded, The Collective, a performance art collaborative and The Artist Responsibility Movement or A.R.M which focuses on "Education through Correlation", or showing students the importance of writing and how it directly relates to their life. With the mind of an engineer, the voice of a poet and the heart and soul of a visionary, Josephus III is constantly transcending barriers. As a visual artist his work has been displayed on billboards as well as on a line of prints entitled Mental Messages. As a performance artist he displays his works and talents in museums, galleries, universities, corporate settings and stage productions just to name a few. He is also a writer and columnist for The GoTriad, in addition to his words being featured on greeting cards and several other collaborative works including a piece by Jacqueline Hughes Mooney for President Bill Clinton. Fusing poetry and art with passion and purpose he has released his debut CD entitled, "Miracles" and is looking to publish his first book, "Prelude to a Poet". Everyday he searches for new ways to use his gifts and abilities to pursue the hopes, dreams, ambitions and purpose of his life.
