The Molotov Mouths Outspoken Word Troupe Explosive New Writing "If there were ever a time for Molotov Mouths, it's now."
-- Luis Rodriguez, award-winning author of Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in LA

The Molotov Mouths Outspoken Word Troupe has a simple mission: to jump-start creative works of the political imagination in these mad times. The focus is social justice. No slogans, no dogma, just powerful writing that never forgets which side of the barricades it is on. The Molotov Mouths aren't waiting for permission to approach the hallowed Ivory Tower or enter the Slam kingdom. Positively shining with subversive solidarity, these stories and poems will make even your mom consider joining the revolution.

The Molotov Mouths are 3 women and 4 men from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds: Chilean-born Ananda Esteva, queer activist Dani Montgomery, working-class firebrand Raw Knowledge, political organizer James Tracy, African-American essayist Leroy Moore, Mission poet George Tirado, and storyteller Josiah Luis Alderete.
