Busboys and Poets is a community gathering place. First established in 2005, Busboys and Poets was created by owner Andy Shallal, an Iraqi-American artist, activist and restaurateur. After opening the flagship location at 14th and V Streets, NW, the neighboring residents and the progressive community embraced Busboys, especially activists opposed to the Iraq War. Busboys and Poets now has six different locations in the Washington Metropolitan area and is a community resource for artists, activists, writers, thinkers, and dreamers.
Busboys and Poets is a community where racial and cultural connections are consciously uplifted...a place to take a deliberate pause and feed your mind, body and soul...a space for art, culture and politics to intentionally collide...we believe that by creating such a space we can inspire social change and begin to transform our community and the world.

"It's never been a movement. This has nothing to do with a bunch of--what do you want to call us?—rednecks, white trash, working poor... None of us likes any of these terms." He explains how it has to do with the availability of higher education. At the end of WWII, people could afford to go to school under the GI Bill. "This is now ending, however," he says. "With the defunding of state colleges and universities, tuition is no longer affordable for working-class kids. If I were eighteen today, I'd have to stay a construction worker. ... The era, about fifty years, of the working-class novel, the working-class writer or artist of any sort, will be over when my generation dies."
It's an insightful and interesting interview, well worth the read whether you are into the genre (? movement?) or not.
