I was just made aware of this, from Brave New Voices, which I've also never heard of before.
I am crying with admiration. I feel an obligation to pass it on.
Look for a clip of the show online, if you can. A packed auditorium, filled with most African-American youth, chanting "PO-E-TRY! PO-E-TRY! PO-E-TRY!", as if they were at the NCAA playoffs. Did I die in my sleep? Is this heaven? Oh. My. God.
These kids, these generations, they're gonna save the world.
