So this poem has been online for a minute in one form or another, but now we get a definitive recording courtesy of the good people at Button Poetry, who continue to provide absolutely essential signal-boosting services to spoken-word poets all over the country.
For my extended thoughts on race, representation and the Twin Cities, check this out.
In somewhat related news, two things:
- Be sure to check out the new Higher Education Justice MN site.
- Check out Free Poet's Press kickstarter for a pop-up bookstore in North MPLS.
- The Twin Cities youth poetry slam season starts in February!
Lots of frustrating things happening, but lots of GOOD things happening too, as those three bullet points illustrate.
