Abstract: 
"The collected signature poems of Billy Tuggle show the unified vision and clear voice that has carried Tuggle as a representative of Chicago into the 2004 and 2005 National Slam Poetry Championships. An accomplished vocalist and human beat-box combines the melody and rhythms of his other passions in poems that ring with the call for social justice, the tolerance for differences, and the pride in ethnic roots that is the delightful and moving legacy of a retired graffiti artist."
