While actively engaging in his artistic career, he is also a community organizer who teaches spoken word poetry workshops in K – 12 schools. His poetry has gained him international attention, especially for his complex lyricism and work on  socio-political awareness. Williams is co-founder of Rich Oak Alchemy Open Mic as well as the Slam Poetry Club. His awards include being dubbed “the nicest poet in the country” after winning the 2017 Compliment Death Match at the National Poetry Slam and runner up at America’s Best College Poet competition in 2020.
