LITTLE ROCK, AR - A young poet from Chicago is visiting a local school hoping to inspire kids with the power of words.

Malcolm London is a guest teacher at eStem as a part of its Noble Impact Program.

London is a member of the Young Chicago Authors Society and travels around the world.

John Bacon, eStem CEO, says he thinks Malcolm is a great person to connect his students with and give them inspiration.

"The poems he is reading them, these are real life, real world. They may know people or have relatives that are in those same experiences or maybe living those experiences themselves. So, it's just really great that they can have those adults to touch base with and have as a touchstone to life," says Bacon.

London will be helping students through Friday.
