(FULL) Live Poets: Diverse Voices
- Open to All GradesOpen to All Grades
Watch and discuss poetry readings that represent important voices on the topics of diversity, civil rights, cultural identity, and vision. Explore the intersection of poetry and justice. Most videos, though not all, feature slam poetry or performance poetry, and these voices come from both "classic" and cutting edge figures (from MLK Jr. to Saul Williams to prominent emerging voices in slam poetry today). Each clip would be followed by a discussion that explores the impact of these voices on the audience.
