Noel Quiñones is a Puerto Rican poet, actor, community organizer, and performance artist born and raised in the Bronx. He travels the country with his talk “Beyond the Black / White Binary: Exploring the Inner Ethnic Conflict of Latinidad,” using his poetry to break open the binaries we impose on our identities. As a writer, he’s received fellowships from Poets House, the Poetry Foundation, CantoMundo, Candor Arts, and SAFTA (Sundress Academy for the Arts). As a performer, he’s featured at Lincoln Center, Harvard University, BAM, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, and Jawdance in London, to name a few. His performances have been showcased on Huffington Post, Tidal Music, Vibe, Latina Magazine, Medium, Remezcla, Univision, and elsewhere. Founder of Project X, a Bronx-based arts organization, and co-organizer of #PoetsforPuertoRico, Quiñones was recently named one of New York State’s “40 Under 40 Rising Latino Stars” by The Hispanic Coalition and as a 2018 Intercultural Leadership Institute Fellow.
