Spoken word poetry gets a bad rap. Not too long ago I couldn't stand it, but upon reintroduction, I heard some lines that caught my attention. As I've delved deeper into the poems and performances, I'm coming to appreciate the craft more and more.
Here are a few of the performances that have caught my eye as of late.
Dominique Christina & Denice Frohman - "No Child Left Behind"
Siaara Freeman - "The Drug Dealer's Daughter"
Ebony Stewart - "60 Seconds"
