Feature artist on WusGood? mag: 

 

Tankas for A Seat at the Table

I wake this morning

Feeling shattered, robbed and stolen

Yet, still I say

Daily affirmation: Don’t

Let anyone steal this magic

 

A white boy touched my

hair, I felt myself start to

fade, to dwindle a-

way. Less than, less than, sand in

The wind. Yet, I am still here

 

If celebrating

me seems to mean I am dis-

respecting you, then

so be it. Sit in the heat

of your anger while I shine

I’m gonna look for

My body now she said and

Then I came to learn

My body was missing too

What I claim may not be mine

 

I guess to be Black

Is to lose your own body

Though it be stolen

and go look for it your damn

Self. I’ll be back, like real soon

 

I tell white not to

Say the word nigga, they say

It anway. This

Is an act of violence, but

When has white not been violent

"Slam Poets Shaking Up The World" The Odyssey

Slam Poets are the revolutionary voice of this generation, not Hip-Hop artists or whatever Pop artists that get a ton of fame from music. The poets that "share their naked feelings with the world" Abiodun Oyewole said are who we have to give us the real news of current events. These poets are exuberant with their blackness and are not asking for anything, simply telling you what's going on in a different way than you've heard before.


"Hair as a symbol of black feminism" the odyssey
