Performed at the Stonewall International Poetry Slam
“I’ve been told I can’t talk about the Black experience in America. Been told I can’t talk about it in the classroom in front of my college students in my poems because I sound less like Malcolm X and more like Nelson Mandela.”
Don’t miss this incredible poem from King Yaw, performing at the Stonewall International Poetry Slam in Baltimore, MD.
